This is a collection of four issues (from 1922 and 1923) of The Golden Hind, one of the most celebrated and beautifully produced art and literature magazines of the century. Published by Chapman and Hall in London, these issues include countless gorgeous images, all printed on heavy, textured paper. Among them are lithographs of a half-nude laborer by Laurence Bradshaw and a nude, heavily-muscled man by Austin O. Spare -- not to mention caricatures, woodcuts, female nudes and other works -- all just in the January, 1923 issue alone! The editors of this publication chose this large format to "give our draughtsmen the best possible conditions," but the frequent nudes shown in its pages caused controversy at the time. One fascinating element of this series is a special note inserted in the July, 1923 issue which defends the inclusion of nude images: "It is always the nude that finds people out. Artists often forget that only one person in ten thousand can look upon a nude-study as a work of skill and that all the others see it primarily as a challenge to their conceptions of morality."
