Notes

First edition, first impression of the first issue of The Criterion, containing the first appearance in print of T. S. Eliot's The Waste Land, arguably the most significant poem of the 20th century. The poem was first published in book-form in December 1922 in New York. The journal, a notably international affair, also includes work by Dostoevski (trans. S. S. Koteliansky and Virginia Woolf), Hermann Hesse, and Valery Larbaud on Joyce's Ulysses.

Condition

An excellent, well-preserved copy; some creasing around overhanging cover extremities as usual, spine lightly darkened and a little scuffed with very minor chip at foot, minor soiling and abrasion to covers, a few trivial instances of foxing to contents but generally clean.
