T. S. Eliot
Old Possum's Book of Practical Cats
London: Faber and Faber, January 1957.
First illustrated edition, eighth impression.
One of the greatest collaborations and most charming books of all time.
Eliot at his most playful, demonstrating a delightful mastery of language, a kind of love-song to everything he relished in England, through the metaphor of cats.
Nicolas Bentley transformed an earlier edition of these poems, by his wonderful drawings, from a minor work to no less than a masterpiece.
Book is in perfect condition, with owner names, jacket has edge dirt and wear, otherwise very good.
