One of 350 copies - inscribed by the author. From an edition of 350 copies, this is of one of the first 50 reserved for Waugh's own use.

With the author's presentation inscription to the limitation leaf, 'For Basil with warm regards from Evelyn'. The recipient was Colonel Basil Bennett. Waugh and Bennett had met whilst lodging together under Laycock's command during the war. They became friends and drinking companions which association would last (with a couple of lacunae) till Waugh's death. Bennett's father owned the Hyde Park Hotel and Basil would go on to run it. Waugh stayed there with Laura when the family were in town. A fantastic association copy.

First edition, first impression, inscribed by the author, one of 350 numbered copies, specially bound, printed on large paper; 8vo; publisher's red buckram, device to upper board and titles to spine gilt, top edge gilt, others untrimmed; some spotting to the endpapers, cloth just a little dull, but a very nice copy housed in a brown cloth slipcase.
