GILL, Eric. GOLDEN COCKEREL PRESS. ~ Clothing Without Cloth. An Essay on the Nude.
4 wood engravings of nudes by Eric Gill, the author. One of 500 numbered copies, this no.482. Tall thin 8vo., original scarlet buckram with GCP in gilt on upper cover and spine lettered in gilt, all edges gilded, top edge gilt, others uncut. Fading to the spine and light browning to the free endpapers but generally a very good, bright and fresh copy.
The male nude here seen as the frontispiece is a perhaps exaggerated self-portrait of Gill originally intended to depict Lady Chatterley's gamekeeper lover.
With booklabel of ‘L.J.H.B.’ on front pastedown and leather and gilt booklabel of C.S. Barlow on the front free endpaper.
