"WE ARE APT TO THINK OF THE MIDDLE AGES AS HAVING BEEN SOMEHOW SPECIALLY FAVOURED": SIGNED LIMITED FIRST EDITION OF RELIGIOUS DRAMA: MEDIAEVAL AND MODERN, ONE OF ONLY 300 COPIES SIGNED BY T.S. ELIOT

ELIOT, T.S. Religious Drama: Mediaeval and Modern. New York: House of Books, 1954. Slim octavo, original burgundy cloth, original glassine. $1500.

Signed limited first edition of Eliot's illuminating work on the value of religious drama, number 297 of only 300 copies signed by T.S. Eliot.

This work is the text of an address that Eliot delivered to the Friends of Rochester Cathedral in 1937, not long after he completed Murder in the Cathedral. It concerns his feelings on religious drama and both medieval and modern examples thereof. Eliot is careful to mention in the prefatory notes that his views on Ibsen have improved since the '30s, and that many other ideas he presented at that time had similarly evolved. Gallup A65.

Only most minor wear to fragile glassine, book fine.
