Tall, slim 8vo: [8],39,[1]pp. Publisher's black cloth, spine lettered in gilt; correct second-state dust jacket (price-clipped), with six titles in bold print on back panel (versus nine on first issue jacket), designed by E. McKnight Kauffer and printed in black, cream and grey. Fine, square, tight, and bright; Near Fine or better (shallow chip at head of spine, not affecting lettering). Gallup A43a.Connolly 92. Eliot's wartime masterpiece, collecting in one volume four previously and separately published parts (Burnt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages and Little Gidding), and preceding the British collected edition by nearly one year. East Coker is the village in Somerset from which Eliot's ancestors departed for the New World in 1669; Burnt Norton refers to the Gloucestershire manor house erected on the foundation of a house that burned to the ground in the seventeenth century; The Dry Salvages is a group of rocks off Cape Ann, and so harks to the poet's New England roots, and Little Gidding was the manor in Huntingdonshire that was the destination of poets' pilgrimages as the site where Nicholas Ferrar founded an Anglican religious community in the mid-seventeenth century. Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. Bookseller Inventory #
