About this Item: Chapman & Hall [through 1961], London, 1952. Hardcover. Condition: Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Fine. First Edition. Three fine First Impression octavo volumes, each signed on the front jacket flap by the legendary illustrator Val Biro (1921-2014). vi,314; [10],335; [8],311. Original publisher's blue cloth, spines stamped in gilt, top edges stained blue; bright red, blue, yellow, and white dust jackets by Biro. Men at Arms (1952): Fine, tight and square with bright gilt and rich top stain; about Fine jacket (just a degree of fading to spine panel, the end of which are briefly rubbed), priced 12s/6d on publisher's label over printed price. Officers and Gentlemen (1955): Fine and unread (top stain lightly spotted); Fine jacket (spine panel barely lightened), priced 12s/6d. Unconditional Surrender (1961): Fine and apparently unread (single pinhead stain to fore-edge); about Fine jacket (price-clipped), completely unfaded, vibrant and bright. In all, a superb set, rarely seen seen in such condition, let alone signed (no other such set we know of exists). Burgess 99, pp. 61-62. Callil and Toibin 200, 39. "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). Never planned as a trilogy. Following Officers and Gentlemen, the second installment, Waugh decided he had said all he had to say about 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 in recognition of the sacrifices the Soviets had made against the Nazis.) But, according to Burgess, "Most readers prefer to take the items severally and in their unrevised form." In the event, the trilogy is generally regarded as Waugh's greatest achievement in fiction, with its "fine war reportage and superb comic action." Waugh received the James Tait Black Memorial Prize for Men at Arms. Note: With few exceptions (always noted), we only stock books in exceptional condition, with dust jackets carefully preserved in archival, removable polypropylene sleeves. All orders are packaged with care and posted promptly. Satisfaction guaranteed. Seller Inventory # BB1628

About this Item: Little, Brown, 1952. Hardcover. 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.
