First edition, first impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “For Bob, No journalist, from Evelyn, failed in the trade”. With the recipient Robert Laycock’s bookplate. Waugh had served as person assistant to Laycock during the defense of Crete in May and June 1941. Laycock and Waugh were on the last ship to leave the island, and Waugh would later incorporate their experiences into Officers and Gentlemen.

Octavo. Original red and black snakeskin-patterned cloth, titles to spine gilt. Housed in a quarter red morocco solander case. Cloth very lightly rubbed at extremities, spotting to edges of text block, endpapers a little toned. An excellent, fresh copy.
