Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats
London: Faber and Faber Limited, 1939. A very bright copy of Eliot's playful little collection of feline poetry. Book is Fine, bright, clean and unmarked. In a Near Fine, price-clipped dust jacket that is a bit toned along the spine and with a touch of wear at the spine ends. Nonetheless, a copy that is well above average and becoming scarce in this condition. Eliot's book of children's poems, published in 1939. Eliot had been a lover of cats throughout his entire life, and although the book was originally meant to include dogs as well, Eliot decided it would be "impolite" to wrap them together. Appropriately enough, Eliot had imagined setting many of the poems to music -- which isn't surprising since the work would inspire the immensely successful Broadway musical, Cats. In fact, Eliot would win a posthumous Tony award for the production, one of numerous Tonys that Cats would receive, including Best Musical. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket. Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.
