This is a catalogue of books by Jesuit authors and works relating to the Society of Jesus published between 1548, when Ignatius of Loyola’s Spiritual Exercises was first printed, and 1773, when the Society was suppressed. It includes an historical introduction by Alastair Hamilton, Arcadian Visiting Research Professor, Warburg Institute, University of London. Originally issued as our Catalogue 1226 in 1996, The Society of Jesus has been unobtainable for many years and has become sought after as a reference work. To meet this demand it has now been reprinted, in hardback, in an edition of 200 copies.

GOLDEN COCKEREL PRESS – Christopher SANDFORD.
Cockalorum. A Sequel to Chanticleer and Pertelote. Being a Bibliography of the Golden Cockerel Press June 1943-December 1948. Foreword and Notes by Christopher Sandford.
First edition, no. 232 of 250 specially-bound copies signed by Sandford. Cockalorum was the third of the four bibliographies of its publications that the Golden Cockerel Press issued, and it spans the period between June 1943 and December 1948. During this time, as Sandford records in his foreword, his partner Owen Rutter died ‘from exhaustion at the Admiralty’, and the destruction of the Press’ premises during the Blitz led Sandford to establish an office in Sangorski and Sutcliffe’s bindery, at the invitation of Stanley Bray. He concludes with the statement that, though threats of war continued to rumble on, ‘[e]ven in the fox’s mouth, Cockalorum will continue to crow’ (p. 11). The catalogue of publications is followed by three articles by Sandford on artists who worked for the press – Dorothea Braby, John Buckland-Wright, and Clifford Webb – and memorials of Eric Ravilious (d. 1943) by Sandford, Ravilious’ widow, and one of his pupils. The volume concludes with two addresses on printing by Sandford, which he had given to university students.
