Four Quartets: Burnt Norton (1941), East - Eliot, T. S - 1940. [1231042]
Faber & Faber 1940 - A superb, Near Fine (or better) first edition, first impression set of Eliot’s wartime masterpiece. Four uniform softcover pamphlets in stapled wraps: all are unclipped first printings and all are very crisp and clean, free of inscriptions and any marks of note. 1. Burnt Norton (February 1941) is Near Fine+ in bright blue wrappers lightly rubbed to the heel of the spine; rusty staples (as is common). 2. East Coker (September 1940) is Near Fine in tan wrappers toned to the extremities; internally, a few isolated patches of very faint browning/foxing, else bright and clean. 3. The Dry Salvages (September 1941) is Fine but for some sunning to the extremities of the pale blue wrappers. 4. Little Gidding (1942, stapled not sewn) is Near Fine+; a cheaper production on darker paper stock and without the French Flaps (and printed price) of the other volumes; original pencil price of ‘1/-’ to the top corner of the first page; short crease to the tip of the top rear corner of the wrappers. By any measure a very bright and fresh set. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard. [Attributes: First Edition; Soft Cover]
