To go by this Amazon link, it's a collection of Eliot's early poems and essays. 
There is a reader review at this link.

   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:

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...
