ELIOT, TS; a 1934 first edition of The Rock: a pageant play published by Faber & Faber, inscribed to Miss Phyllis Woodliffe, who had played the part of 'Mrs Bert' in the play, signed by TS Eliot and dated in 1934. TS Eliot had a minor correspondence with Miss Woodliffe which appears in the collected letters of TS Eliot volume 6. She was an actress and a receipt to her addressed to Sadler's Wells Theatre in London is included with the lot. The Rock was written as part of a fund raising campaign to assist the Forty-Five Churches Fund to build new churches in London's suburbs. The Rock expresses Eliot's thoughts on community and tradition which he later elaborated more famously in, for example, 'Murder in the Cathedral'.
