A rare book

This is a book I picked up from M G Road and is a collection of T S Eliot's poems. It is what is called a review copy, which is sent to the author and sundry reviewers. (I don't know if the practice exists now.) What is rare is that I found the manuscript of an unfinished poem in it, in a beautiful ornate hand which matches Eliot's (see pic of manuscript alongside).
