ELIOT, T.S. (Thomas Stearns), 1888-1965 : OLD POSSUM’S BOOK OF PRACTICAL CATS.

London : Faber & Faber, (1939). First edition. The first appearance of Growltiger, the Rum Tum Tugger, Old Deuteronomy, Mr Mistoffelees, Macavity the Mystery Cat, Bustopher Jones, Skimbleshanks, etc. The cover and dust-jacket illustrations are by Eliot himself, neither being repeated inside the book.
Foolscap 4to (23cm). (46),[ii]pp. Original yellow pictorial cloth, blocked and lettered in red; a few slight marks; some spotting, mainly of edges, but otherwise a very good copy in the dust-jacket – a little rubbed, worn and sunned; lightly marked; slightly chipped at head, with a few nicks and very short tears, but a still attractive and welcome survival. With the ex-libris label of Ruth Kitching. Gallup A34a.
