Exploring The Waste Land
A change page linked from The Waste Land's dedication

When originally published in 1922 The Waste Land did not have the dedication to Ezra Pound. After receiving printed copies of the book Eliot gave one to Pound inscribed with the lines:

for E.P.
miglior fabbro
from T.S.E.
Jan. 1923

The dedication was added to The Waste Land in 1925 when it was reprinted in Eliot's Poems: 1909-1925.
