A Cockerel Device

These wood engravings all come from books published by The Golden Cockerel Press, a private press operating in England between 1920 and 1961.


I was scanning from a 1975 American book, Bibliography of The Golden Cockerel Press, 1921–1949, which combines the three illustrated bibliographies Chanticleer, Pertelote, and Cockalorum.
