Notes

Uncorrected proof copy of the first trade edition. Brideshead Revisited was written from January to June 1944. Waugh had an edition of 50 copies on handmade paper printed for private circulation to his most trusted literary friends, who were encouraged to return comments to him. That ur-text, though dated 1945, was issued in December 1944. It was succeeded by the London trade edition, published by Chapman and Hall on 28 May 1945, which sold out within the week. This proof copy represents the intermediate stage between the two, reflecting significant textual changes made by Waugh in response to comments from Nancy Mitford, Ronald Knox, and others, but with other minor changes before publication yet to be made.
