"The Golden Cockerel Press edition of The Four Gospels of the Lord Jesus Christ (1931) is one of the acknowledged masterpieces of the twentieth century. Locating and utilizing a great many documents, including, for example, the original paste-ups for the entire text, the patterns and punches, sketches and other working papers, John Dreyfus has shed considerable new light on how this superb work was conceived, planned and executed". (Harlan, Two Hundreth Book 51-52)
