INSCRIBED BY ELIOT TO A FRIEND AND FELLOW FABER DIRECTOR. The recipient W.J. Crawley was the head of Faber's sales department from the early days, and a friend of Eliot's from the early 1930s until the poet's death in 1965. His judgement about whether a book would sell was considered infallible and he famously argued, during a heated discussion at the legendary Faber Book Committee in the autumn of 1953, against publishing William Golding's Lord of the Flies. Eventually the chairman overruled him, and the young editor Charles Monteith, who was championing the book, was allowed to go ahead with publication, after some agreed revisions by Golding.
