"When the New York Public Library announced in October 1968 that its Berg Collection contained the original manuscript of The Waste Land which T. S. Eliot had sent to John Quinn exactly 46 years before, one of the most puzzling mysteries connected with twentieth-century literature was solved. In order that this material may b e widely available for study, a facsimile has been produced, with a transcript on facing pages. This transcript has been prepared by Mrs. Valerie Eliot, the poet's widow, who has also written an illuminating introduction and provided valuable explanatory notes and cross-references."
