Contents page of Eliot's wartime masterpiece includes four works Burt Norton, East Coker, The Dry Salvages, Litle Gidding together in one book that formerly had been published separately. 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. Dust Jacket is torn in fold about 3/4s of the way but now in Mylar Protective Cover. A very good collector's grade item. It is the last major verse written by Nobel laureate T. S. Eliot, considered by Eliot himself to be his finest work. Rare. ; 8.70 X 5.60 X 0.40 inches; 39 pages
