I finished reboxing the collection and arranging them alphabetically!
This week I found T.S. Eliot’s drafts of “Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats.” The musical “Cats” is based on this book. Eliot had sent initial drafts to Emily Hale. It reads “for Miss Emily Hale, this not quite final text from Old Possum.” I love that he signed it not as from “T.S. Eliot” but from “Old Possum.” Next week, I want to compare this original text to the final version and see what changes were made.
Thanks for reading!
