Anabasis: a poem With a translation into English [and a preface] by TS Eliot PERSE (St-J) [Very Good] [Hardcover] ID 19049041389

Free endpapers slightly embrowned, otherwise a nice copy in a worn slipcase. Edition limited to 350 numbered copies signed by the translator, this copy with the ticket of the Holliday Bookshop, New York. Parallel French and English texts, one Nobel Prize winner translated by another: "I have built myself, with honour and dignity have I built myself on three great seasons, and it promises well, the soul whereon I have established my Law. / Our burnished arms are fair in the morning and behind us the sea is fair. This husk of earth given over to our horses / delivers to us this incorruptible sky. The Sun is unmentioned but his power is amongst us / and the sea at morning like a presumption of the mind . . ."
