Officers and Gentlemen.
First US edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “Dear Fr. Vincent, I hope that bits of this may amuse you. I am sorry to send an American copy. It cost twice as much as the English, so perhaps it is twice as good. I don’t like the wrapper at all. Yours sincerely, Evelyn Waugh”.
