Notes

Final four issues of the important literary magazine, with five illustrations by Evelyn Waugh; and 3 others, including 2 works containing Dudley Carew's bookplate designed by Waugh and Circular Saws with the Waugh-designed dust-jacket.
"At Oxford Evelyn had a greater reputation as a graphic artist than a writer, and as such was much in demand, designing covers for magazines, OUDS programmes, book jackets for Chapman & Hall and for the caricatures with which he had been successful at Lancing, when he bartered satirical sketches for cream slices and halfpenny stamps. During one vacation he took lessons in wood-engraving... and sold a number of prints... to Clifford Bax for his short-lived publication, the Golden Hind" (Selina Hastings, Evelyn Waugh, A Biography).
