FOUR QUARTETS. T. S. Eliot. FOUR QUARTETS.
New York: Harcourt, Brace, (1943). First edition, one of only 788 copies released. States "first American edition," as called for; in first-state dust jacket with $2.00 price in upper corner of front flap, back flap blank, and nine titles listed in bold on back panel ending with "Old Possum's...." Collects BURNT NORTON, EAST COKER, THE DRY SALVAGES, and LITTLE GIDDING, which were first published separately in pamphlet form in London from 1940 to 1942. Cyril Connolly included FOUR QUARTETS in his "Modern Movement: 100 Key Books 1880-1950," saying it was "the most important poem since Yeat's 'The Tower,' and, as many think, of the century." Good to very good with touch of faint scattered foxing and gilt on spine somewhat dulled (still very readable). The E. McKnight Kauffer-designed dust jacket shows a little aging and has been professionally repaired, filling in chipping along top edge and closing one tear. Still, overall, very good.
