    Thanks, CR, interesting Amazon review and you are correct about the 
contents. I posted an inquiry on the publisher's web page for the book 
and got a reply that included the table of contents:

/TABLE OF CONTENTS
Critical Introduction by Jeremiah Webster..................................1

Land.............................................................................21

Ezra Pound: Metric and 
Poetry....................................................99

It's more or less been done before, but the addition of Eeldrop and 
Appleplex is nice and it would be a handy volume for a cross country or 
trans-Atlantic flight.....I'd like to see if the introduction develops 
into anything more. With all of the collections of out-of-copyright 
early Eliot proliferating, the next big Eliot publishing project will 
probably have to be a collection of those introductions...
