Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats

Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats by T S Eliot, illustrated by Nicholas Bentley 

Introduced by Anne Brichto of Addyman Books in Hay-on-Wye 

Jellicle Cats are dancing across my desk. T S Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats has brought joy to many. This edition illustrated by Nicholas Bentley is the best. 

 

This early one is £30 but we have a first edition in a wrapper which I am about to price and catalogue which will be about £200.

All of T S Eliot works are collectable in first edition form but the two that we get asked for the most are The Four Quartets and this.
