The Idea of a Christian Society

ELIOT, T.S.

ELIOT, T.S. The Idea of a Christian Society

Faber & Faber Ltd., 1939.

First edition. Original blue boards lettered in gilt to the spine, in the red dustwrapper. Fore and bottom edges untrimmed. Signed by Eliot on the title page. Postcard loosely laid in. A very good copy indeed, in a very good dustwrapper, with a couple of closed tears reinforced by tape to verso.

This essay is based on the Boutwood Lectures, a programme of three talks given by Eliot at Corpus Christi, Cambridge in March 1939. The postcard laid in is written by one of the attendees and reads "I heard these lectures being delivered at Corpus, & was bidden to meet Eliot one evening - the first time I met him. We were a pair of tongue-tied undergraduates, and he talked mostly about cheese."
