The notebook, in which the twenty-one-year old Thomas Stearns Eliot first began to enter the poems he had been writing at Harvard, is "quarter- bound in leather" with "marbled-paper sides", and was purchased in Gloucester, Massachusetts. It was here that the Eliot family took their summer vacations during the 1900s.

It has been in the Berg Collection at the New York Public Library since 1958 but this is the first time that it has been made public. This book is a facsimile of the Notebook with facing transcriptions of around 60 poems, including the first transcription of Prufrock.

There is a most illuminating introduction by the internationally renowned writer and journalist, Robert McCrum, who places the publication of this volume in the context of major literary discoveries.
