Quoting T. S. Eliot on “the sea ... all about us”

American biologist and author (1907–1964) best known for the ecological classic Silent Spring. Souvenir quotation on a double-weight off-white 5.75 x 3.5 embossed collector's card, comprising seven lines of T. S. Eliot’s poem “The Dry Salvages” in ballpoint, signed and inscribed “For Roger Harris—With all good wishes—Rachel Carson.” In full: “The river is within us, the sea is all about us; the sea is the land’s edge also, the granite into which it reaches, the beaches where it tosses; its hints of earlier and other creatures; the starfish, the hermit crab, the whale’s backbone; the pools where it offers to our curiosity the more delicate algae and the sea anemone. T. S. Eliot.” In fine, clean condition. R&R COA.
