Presentation copy to Juliet Duff. An account of Waugh's travels in British Guiana and Brazil.

Inscribed by the author to Lady Juliet Duff (1881-1965): 'Dear Juliet I don't expect you to read this. I am only sending it for fear you might buy it. It is a poor return for the delightful week-end. Love from Evelyn.' Lady Juliet, daughter of the fourth Earl of Lonsdale, was a great patron of the arts, and counted Evelyn Waugh amongst her friends, along with Cecil Beaton and many of the Bright Young Things of the 1920s.

First US edition, first printing, inscribed by the author; 8vo; 23 black and white illustrations, including frontispiece, folding map, text block slightly age-toned, occasional spotting to upper margin; publisher's yellow cloth, green lettering to spine and upper cover, blue topstain, cloth slightly soiled, light offsetting to endpapers, in a first printing dustjacket supplied from another copy, slightly toned, extremities chipped with loss, associated creasing; overall very good.
