The Elder Statesman.
First edition thus of Eliot’s play, first produced at the Edinburgh Festival 1958. The green jacket of the present copy is for Gallup an early-issue point; later copies would come in a thinner, grey jacket.
Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Spine gently rolled, very faint wear to extremities, rear endleaves minutely marked; an excellent copy in the bright dust jacket a touch rubbed along top edge.
