The translationally invariant diagrammatic quantum perturbation theory (TPT) is applied to the polaron problem on the 1D lattice, modeled through the Holstein Hamiltonian with the phonon frequency $\omega_0$, the electron hopping $t$ and the electron-phonon coupling constant $g$. The self- energy diagrams of the fourth-order in $g$ are calculated exactly for an intermittently added electron, in addition to the previously known second-order term. The corresponding quadratic and quartic corrections to the polaron ground state energy become comparable at $t/\omega_0>1$ for $g/\omega_0\sim(t/\omega_0)^{; ; ; 1/4}; ; ; $ when the electron self-trapping and translation become adiabatic. The corresponding non adiabatic/adiabatic crossover occurs while the polaron width is large, i.e. the lattice coarsening negligible. This result is extended to the range $(t/\omega_0)^{; ; ; 1/2}; ; ; >g/\omega_0>(t/\omega_0)^{; ; ; ; 1/4}; ; ; ; >1$ by considering the scaling properties of the high-order self-energy diagrams. It is shown that the polaron ground state energy, its width and the effective mass agree with the results found traditionally from the broken symmetry side, kinematic corrections included. The Landau self-trapping of the electron in the classic self-consistent, localized displacement potential, the restoration of the translational symmetry by the classic translational Goldstone mode and the quantization of the polaronic translational coordinate are thus all encompassed by a quantum theory which is translationally invariant from the outset. This represents the first example, open to various generalizations, of the capability of TPT to hold through the adiabatic symmetry breaking crossover. Plausible arguments are also given that TPT can describe the $g/\omega_0>(t/\omega_0)^{; ; ; 1/2}; ; ; $ regime of the small polaron with adiabatic or non-adiabatic translation, i.e., that TPT can cover the whole $g/\omega_0$, $t/\omega_0$ parameter space of the Holstein Hamiltonian.
