Murder in the Cathedral: A Dramatization of the murder of Thomas Becket at Canterbury

New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, [1936]. First Revised Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. A Very Good copy of the second American edition, first printing -- being the first revised edition (some wear to the spine ends and tiny rubs to the leading board corners) in a Very Good dust jacket (with some general wear, toning, tiny ink insertion in the title immediately prior to "Becket", small stain to the front panel at the "D" in "MURDER"); a dramatization of the murder of Thomas Becket at Canterbury; an act which nearly cost Henry II the English Throne. In this second edition, Eliot deleted the dialogue of the three Priests which had appeared at the beginning of Part II and replaced it with a speech by the Chorus. These changes brought the text into conformity with a then-recent production of the Play at the Mercury Theatre in London. Very good / very good. Item #2733
