Notes

First edition, first impression. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "Arthur from Tony. Hands across the sea. Sept. 1966." The recipient was Arthur M. Schlesinger, Jr., the American historian, writer and political adviser. Schlesinger was a fan of Powell who wrote an essay, "Anthony Powell: The Prosopographer as Novelist", for the Powell Symposium in Summary magazine (autumn 1970). Schlesinger and Powell shared a close friendship with Evangeline Bruce, though they do not seem to have met in person.
