The Cultivation of Christmas Trees T.S.  Eliot 1956, Farrar,Straus and Cudahy 1st edition Christmas  This is a 1st American edition of Eliot’s final poem-pamphlet for the Ariel series, The Cultivation of Christmas Tree—  a long-out-of-print gem, typeset, bound, and illustrated by Enrico Arno, who had fled Nazi Germany due to his Jewish descent, spent some time in Italy, and eventually settled in the United States to become an acclaimed book designer and album cover artist. What makes Eliot’s verses especially memorable is that while they deal with a religious holiday, they speak to a very secular concern: our struggle to hold on to our inborn capacity for wonder, that same essential faculty that fuels both science and spirituality. Please enjoy.
