There are two states of the first impression dust jacket for Scoop. Originally the tromp l'oiel newspaper image had the partial banner 'aily Beas' in the style and typeface of the Daily Express. Beaverbrook (himself lampooned in the novel as Lord Copper) cited the mast head in his proposed action against Waugh and Chapman & Hall who restruck the jackets with the masthead entirely blank. However, they left the devastating descriptions of 'Lord Copper' intact. And they got away with it!

First edition, first issue in second state dust jacket; 8vo; strictly contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper, stock a little toned as often, with 's' in 'as' in last line of p88; publisher's black and red patterned boards, with the original dust jacket, without the 'Daily Beast' logo; a very good copy in the lightly frayed and rubbed dust jacket with a single tiny chip and some needless internal repair.
