[SOLOMON][BIBLE]

Illustrated with six copperplate engravings including an engraved frontispiece by Ru Van Rossem. The Song of Songs, also known as the Song of Solomon, is one of the scrolls of the "Writings", the last section of the Hebrew Bible, and the fifth of the "wisdom" books of the Christian Old Testament. Scripturally, the Song of Songs is unique in its celebration of sexual love. It gives "the voices of two lovers, praising each other, yearning for each other, proffering invitations to enjoy". The two are in harmony, each desiring the other and rejoicing in sexual intimacy; the women of Jerusalem form a chorus to the lovers, functioning as an audience whose participation in the lovers' erotic encounters facilitates the participation of the reader. Spine is sunned, else unmarked, tight, square and clean. Slipcase has a small split at the bottom edge and has light shelf-wear. VERY GOOD+.. Copper Engravings. 4to 11" - 13" tall. (iv), 23 pp. Very Good+ with No dust jacket as issued .
