Eliot, T.S.:

PRUFROCK AND OTHER OBSERVATIONS.

      London: The Egoist, Ltd., 1917. - Printed buff wrappers. Trace of usual tanning from wrapper to facing pages, small tasteful bookplate inside front wrapper (a bit offset opposite and shadowed slightly through upper wrapper) and ink acquisition date on half- title (see below), minute nick at crown of spine, otherwise a lovely copy, without any of the creases or attempts at restoration common to copies of this title. First edition of the author's uncommon first book. One of a total edition of five hundred copies. With the small bookplate inside the front wrapper, and ink acquisition note ("Sept. 27th 1917") on the half-title, of Rev. Charles C. Bubb, proprietor of The Clerk's Press, friend, correspondent and publisher of many of the prominent Imagists and their contemporaries, including H.D., Aldington, Cournos, Flint, Storer, et al. The book was formally published in June. Few first books by poets can claim to have made only a small portion of the impact traceable to this book. ".Something quite new in English verse and far beyond the capacity of Laforgue who is given credit for influencing him" - Connolly. GALLUP A1. MODERN MOVEMENT 30.
