About this Item

First U.S. edition, preceding the UK hardback edition. Collects BURNT NORTON, EAST COKER, THE DRY SALVAGES, and LITTLE GIDDING. 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." The four titles comprising FOUR QUARTETS were first published separately as pamphlets in London in 1941 and '42. This first printing states "first American edition" and is one of only 788 copies released. A bright, near fine copy in black cloth with bright gilt lettering on spine; in the first-state dust jacket with $2.00 price in upper corner of front flap, back flap blank, and the nine titles listed in bold print on the back panel ending with "Old Possum's." The dust jacket was designed by E. McKnight Kauffer. It shows a small chip to top edge rear panel, short closed tear to top edge front panel, and tiny chips on corners and spine ends. The rear panel is also little darkened but otherwise the dust jacket is very good to near fine. Bookseller Inventory # 53537
