What Is a Classic?

ELIOT, T.S.

ELIOT, T.S. What Is a Classic?

Faber, 1945.

First edition, casebound issue. Publisher's light blue cloth, lettered gilt to spine, in the printed dustwrapper. Inscribed by Eliot on the front free endpaper for the author Warner Allen, "To Warner Allen from T. S. Eliot 7.ii.45.". An attractively produced book, printed on grey-blue paper. A very good copy, spine slightly cocked and faded, in a very good dustwrapper, a little dusty with some edgewear.

What Is A Classic is the lecture Eliot gave as the first annual address of the Virgil Society, of which he was also the inaugural President.
H. Warner Allen was a broadminded member of the London literati, and the author of books as varied as detective fiction, the history of wine and on spirituality. His best known book was on this last subject and titled The Timeless Moment, a phrase he borrowed from Eliot's Four Quartets.
