One careless oversight in my list, involves a picture of Eliot facing
the title page. Here is the revised standard version.
1. It is limited to 500 copies (mine is 431).
2. It is hard bound and in a hard sleeve,
both coloured orangey brown. The front cover
has in the lower right, Eliot's signature with,
for me anyway, an uncharacteristic flourish below.
The last page facing the back cover sheet, at the
bottom, is where the statement about the limited
edition is placed, with the line to indicate which
number the copy in hand is.
3. It has its own ISBN: 057109634 4
(Regular version is 057109635 2)
4. The intro. has more pages:
1. a picture, faciing the title page, of Eliot stretched
out in a sun chair beside a big round table, looking
off to his left as in a pensive mood.
It was taken at 9 Clarence Gate Gardens, London NW1 in 1922.
2. a photostat of the label of the packet Eliot sent to Quinn
on the verylast page of the intro, p. xxxv, facing the
Editorial Policy page.
5. Pagination of the main parts are the same.
There is no piece of Eliot's work in the
limited edition that is not in the regular one.
6. In the presentation of the original published version
of TWL at the end, there are included photostats
of the three statements Eliot had for his stay in
Clifton, Margate at the Albermarle Hotel. These
pages are preceeded by a kind of title page with
the relevant line from the poem. The pages are
followed by Eliot's notes for TWL.
The only significant difference, then, is the
inclusion of the picture and the photostats.
