Second edition, with a new introduction by the author. Inscribed by Waugh on the half-title, “With happy & grateful memories of Dundee, from Evelyn Waugh. Oct 26, 1949”. At the outbreak of the Second World War Waugh joined the marine infantry brigade and, after seeing action on the Libyan coast in April 1941, returned to Britain and spent about a year on active duty in Scotland before breaking his leg and obtaining temporary leave to begin writing Brideshead Revisited.

Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to spine gilt, red top-stain. With the dust jacket. Frontispiece and 8 plates. Bookseller’s ticket to front pastedown. Lower edge bumped, cloth a little dulled and spotted, spine slightly faded, spine titles dulled. A very good copy in the price-clipped, rubbed, toned, and spotted jacket with a few nicks and short closed tears.
