A History of the Golden Cockerel Press, 1920-1960

by Roderick Cave, Sarah Manson




Cockerel is one of the three presses that are usually named as the premier British producers of fine illustrated books that began after World War I. Book historian Cave and Manson, a veteran in the publishing industry and library profession, discovered at some point they were both working on a history of the company. So they joined forces to offer a detailed and comprehensive account of the company and the books it produced. They travelled around the world to inspect collections, interviewed as many survivors as possible, and drew on interviews that Cave conducted in 1970-71 with people who have since died. Co-published by The British Library, with the ISBS 0-7123-4778. Annotation ©2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
