  • First edition, inscribed in the month of publication by Eliot to his close friend, the American-born artist Edward McKnight Kauffer (1890-1954). Best known for his posters designed for London Underground, Kauffer supplied the cover artwork to Eliot's Journey of the Magi (1927), Marina (1930) and Triumphal March (1931), and of him Eliot wrote he "did something for modern art with the public and something for the public with modern art" (British Library website).
