Item Description: 1955. First Edition. Signed. WAUGH, Evelyn.Officers and Gentlemen.London: Chapman & Hall, 1955.First edition of the central work in Waugh's Sword of Honour trilogy, presentation/association copy inscribed to his biographer Frederick J. Stopp, "For Fred, with warm regards form Evelyn."Evelyn Waugh's experiences in the Second World War, especially during the Allied reverse in Crete, were the basis for Officers and Gentlemen, the second novel in his Sword of Honour trilogy. Begun in 1953 and completed at the end of 1954, this critically praised work underscores Waugh's "disillusionment with the armyÉ [and] feelings of humiliation over the dŽb‰cle in CreteÉ drawing heavily on the diary written at the time" (Hastings, 571). Cyril Connolly called this "one of Waugh's best-written books" (Sunday Times), and the Times Literary Supplement noted that "Waugh's dialogue and description is as high as ever, his prose just as delightful and dexterous."Book fine; light edge-wear to bright about-fine dust jacket. A highly desirable association copy in about-fine condition. Bookseller Inventory # 69581

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). Bookseller Inventory # 2815

In all, a superb set, scarcely seen in such condition. Burgess 99, pp. 61-62. "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" come 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.

Item Description: Boston: Little, Brown & Company. First Edition, 1952-1961. Three Volumes, complete. All First American Editions. Men at Arms--a Fine clean hardcover copy in red cloth, red dustwrapper, clipped but repriced by publisher, small line of darkening to crown of spine panel; Officers a nd Gentlemen--A Fine hardcover copy in sea-blue cloth, small bump to lower front board near spine, in Fine red dustwrapper, not price-clipped, small tape shadows to tips of rear flap; The End of the Battle--a Fine hardcover copy in black cloth, in a Fine red dustwrapper, price-clipped. 342pp/339pp/319pp. Waugh's war trilogy has many autobiographical elements in it, but as with all his work, his fine augmentations make all the difference. 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
