Comments

Eliot's definition of what it takes to become a literary classic. This Virgil Society issue has a two-page statement about the aims of the Society preceding the title, signed by the founders (Eliot among them), which is not present in the trade issue; and it was issued in printed wrappers. This copy is in a professionally executed green cloth binding, and the text appears to be printed on a heavy parchment or vellum-like, blue-gray tinted paper. Following the text are 20 blank leaves.

Price: $250.00
