OUR NEXT ONLINE FAIR OPENS ON 29TH OCTOBER AT 12 NOON.
Book Description
The sole UK printing of this illustrated edition published by The Golden Cockerel Press, London in 1948. Number '10' of 100 specially bound copies signed by the translator, from an overall limitation of 750. The BOOK is in near Fine condition with just some very slight fading of colouring to the spine. Small folio; wood-engraved frontispiece, pictorial title and twelve half-page wood-engravings by Mark Severin, title in red & black. The publisher's original pictorial red morocco with gilt decorations by Sangorski & Sutcliffe. The top edge gilt, others are uncut. Housed in the original cloth slip-case. Loosely laid in is a two sided Publisher's Prospectus which is in Fine condition. An excellent example of this special edition, with the splendid illustrations by Belgian-born artist & graphic designer Mark Severin, famous for his miniaturised work, bookplates, erotic studies and graphic design work for companies including Imperial Airways and the London Underground. The Homeric Hymns were a series of poems written and performed to celebrate the Greek gods, written in the same epic meter as Homer's 'Iliad' & 'Odyssey'. A highlight from the Cockerel Press.
