Item Description: Chapman and Hall 1951-1961., London, 1951. First editions of each volume in the author's acclaimed Sword of Honour Trilogy. Octavo, 3 volumes. Men At Arms is inscribed by the Waugh to fellow author, J.F. Powers, "For Jim Powers with admiration from Evelyn Waugh I bet you $1 you can't finish it." Officers and Gentlemen and Unconditional Surrender are both signed by Waugh. Each are near fine in very good to fine dust jackets. The Sword of Honour trilogy of novels about World War II, is largely based on the author's own experiences as an army officer and some critics ague the crowning achievement Waugh's career. Its central character is Guy Crouchback, head of an ancient but decayed Catholic family, who at first discovers new purpose in the challenge to defend Christian values against Nazi barbarism, but then gradually finds the complexities and cruelties of war too much for him. "Sword of Honour was the climax of [Waugh’s] career as a novelist . . . Here in his final work there run together the two styles, of mischief and gravity, that can be noted in his writing from the beginning . . . He may justifiably have thought of it as crowning his work" (Frank Kermode). Waugh received the 1952 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Men at Arms. The trilogy is considered by many critics to be the finest novel series of the Second World War. Bookseller Inventory # 2815

Item Description: Little, Brown, 1952. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. 1st Edition. First American edition, first impression, signed and inscribed by the author to the ffep: "For J. L. Naimaster, with thanks for his help to the author, Evelyn Waugh, Oct. 1952". A super association copy, housed in a custom-made red clamshell box, which includes the original correspondence between the author and the recipient. Naimaster was a source drawn upon by Waugh as a background for the military know-how and procedures featured in the novel. The correspondence relating to the presentation was prompted by an advertisement placed by Waugh in The Times in October 1952, looking for a young former PoW to interview for background for what would be Officers and Gentlemen, the second part of the Sword of Honour trilogy: “Mr. Evelyn Waugh seeks detailed information p.o.w. routine from then junior officer taken prisoner unwounded France, 1940; hospitality, expenses, and £50 offered to applicant willing to spend two days in near future under interrogation. – Piers Court, near Dursley, Glos.” A clipping of the original advert is attached to Naimaster’s response to it, suggesting a likely candidate and mentioning that Waugh had materials belonging to him, passed to Waugh by a mutual acquaintance, Major Tommy Wallis. Waugh replies, returning the materials, and enclosing the inscribed copy and a handwritten card: “These were lent me by Major Wallis who I understand is no longer at Winchester. I return them with the deepest gratitude for the help they gave me." Naimaster then writes to thank him. The response to the initial advert had been overwhelming, leading Waugh to prepare a printed reply card, one of which is included. The book itself is Near Fine: tight and square binding in sharp red cloth; gently pushed to the spine tips with a minor bump and tiny scratch to the upper board; bright gilt; Naimaster's bookplate to the front pastedown; very crisp and clean. The bright, unclipped dustwrapper is Very Good+ with rubbing and light wear at the extremities. A special copy. All orders are sent very carefully wrapped in bubble wrap and sturdy cardboard.

Bound in recent blue calf over marbled blue paper boards, with raised bands and gilt titles to spine; top edges tinted blue. With slipcase, bound in blue cloth. Bindings show extremely well, with negligible signs of shelfwear; some marks to edges and topstains. Internally clean and free from spotting. A handsome set. In this trilogy of novels, we follow Guy Crouchback through the course of the Second World War. Somewhat resembling Waugh's own wartime experiences, for instance the Dakar expedition, the novels show Waugh at the height of his writing powers, scathingly satirical on the bureaucracy of modern warfare and earnestly charming on role and value of tradition - including Roman Catholicism.

Unusual to find the set complete in this condition now adays. This trilogy was later published in a single volume as the Sword of Honour; but was apparently named earlier the Men at War trilogy, as this is how it is referred to on the jacket flap of the third volume of this American edition. In additi on, Waugh had originally thought when the second volume was published, that he wouldn't complete the projected trilogy; but of course he did. Bookseller Inventory # Q00376

"Sword of Honour is not merely the story of one man's battles; it is the whole history of the European struggle itself, told with verve, humour, pathos and sharp accuracy." (Burgess). In fact, it was not planned as a trilogy. Following Officers and Gentlemen, the second installment, Waugh decided he had said all he had to say about the experiences of Guy Crouchback, heir of a declining aristocratic English Roman Catholic family who, like Waugh, participated in the Dakar expedition, served a stint with the commandos, experienced the débâcle on Crete, and ended the war in Yugoslavia. But Waugh later changed his mind and completed the sequence with Unconditional Surrender. In 1966, he pruned, revised and issued the trilogy as Sword of Honour (the title is drawn from the ceremonial sword, the "Sword of Stalingrad," made "at the King's command," to be presented to the Soviet Union in recognition of the sacrifices the Soviets made against the Nazis. Before being sent to Moscow, it was put on display in Westminster Abbey where long queues of people "suffused with gratitude to their remote allies" came to worship it. Guy Crouchback is unmoved and chooses not to visit, as he is distinctly not impressed by Joseph Stalin.) But, according to Burgess, "Most readers prefer to take the items severally and in their unrevised form." In the event, it is generally regarded as Waugh’s finest achievement in fiction, with its "fine war reportage and superb comic action." Waugh received the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Men at Arms.
