Description:
London: Chapman and Hall, 1945. First edition of Waugh's masterpiece. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Evelyn Waugh on the title page. Waugh issued a pre-publication edition of the novel in a run of 50 copies. These were printed and specially bound to distribute among friends for Christmas and to solicit any revisions. Several changes were made as a result of his friends' comments, including suggested alterations by Fr. Martin D'Arcy, Cyril Connolly, and Nancy Mitford. A letter from Graham Greene, Waugh's friend and recipient of one of the 50 copies had indicated that Waugh may have only inscribed 19 of the 50 copies (Jeffrey Young Collection, Sotheby's London, 14 December 1992, lot 182). It is because of the specially issued limited edition that so few copies of the first trade edition exist which are signed. Near fine in a very good dust jacket with tape repair and some closed tears. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. Exceptionally rare and desirable signed. "Waugh's… Read More

'...his most carefully written and deeply felt novel..... The brightly devastating satirist of England's twenties and thirties moves from one world to another and a larger one: from the lunacy of a burlesqued Mayfair, very glib and funny and masking the serious point in farce, to a world in which people credibly think and feel' (NY Times Book Review).Subtitled 'The Sacred and Profane Memories of Captain Charles Ryder', Waugh's defining novel details the spiritual lives behind the facades of an aristocratic family and their middle-class friend, the protagonist.

Description:
London: Chapman & Hall Ltd,, 1945. O God, make me good, but not yet First trade edition, first impression, of Waugh's most enduring novel, in a well-preserved example of the notoriously fragile jacket produced to war economy standards. Waugh himself repeatedly referred to this novel as his magnum opus. Brideshead Revisited was written from January to June 1944, while Waugh was recovering after breaking his leg during parachute training in December of the previous year. The author revealed in his autobiography that the story "portrays some aspects of my Oxford life" (Waugh, p. 191); the character of Sebastian Flyte was based on memories of Alastair Graham, one of Waugh's best friends and "romances" during his university years. Exploring the theme of Catholicism for the first time, the novel was described by Waugh as "an attempt to trace the workings of the divine purpose in a pagan world, in the lives off an English Catholic family, half-paganised themselves, in the world of 1929-39" (Wilson, p. 108).… Read More

Description:
London: Chapman and Hall, 1945. A first edition, first printing published by Chapman and Hall in 1945. A very good book with some spotting to the page block and a little staining to the top edge. No inscriptions - little browning to the spine tips. Light stain to the front pastedown corner. Crease to the rear pastedown. In a dust wrapper which has benefitted from restoration to the spine and a little to the edges. A poignant exploration of love, faith, and societal change in pre-World War II England. The novel follows Charles Ryder's evolving relationships with the aristocratic Flyte family, particularly his friendship with the charismatic Sebastian Flyte and his complex connection with Sebastian's sister, Julia. Through the lens of Charles's narrative, the novel delves into themes of nostalgia, Catholicism, and the decline of the British aristocracy. Waugh's eloquent prose captures the essence of a bygone era, blending social critique with a deeply personal and evocative portrayal… Read More
