Tenth printing, presentation copy, inscribed on the front endpaper: “For Bob this body in a fine integument from Evelyn” Vile Bodies, Waugh’s second published novel, sold splendidly well upon publication, going through seven printings in as many weeks, and established Waugh as the pre-eminent novelist of his generation, while gaining him entry into the fashionable drawing rooms of Mayfair.

Octavo. Bound for presentation in 3/4 green morocco, titles to tpine gilt, top edge gilt. Severe spotting to contents and fore-edge, bookplate of Robert Laycock to front pastedown, corners lightly rubbed, a very good copy.
