'The Cultivation of Christmas Trees' by
TS Eliot / David Jones, 1954
Original illustrated wrappers with one full-page, colour lithograph by David Jones. A fine copy in very good original, custom envelope.
The 'Ariel Series' (1927–1931) as it came to be known was an inspired series of 38 pamphlets featuring a single, previously unpublished poem by a major poet, accompanied by an illustration by a noted artist. Many of them have seasonal or Christmas themes.
When Faber released the full Ariel series in 1954, Eliot penned a new poem, The Cultivation of Christmas Trees, to join the series.
