Evelyn Waugh – Brideshead Revisited – First UK Edition – With Band – 1945 –
A first edition, first printing published by Chapman and Hall in 1945. A near fine book without inscriptions. The front and rear boards are a bright red colour. The book is free of any previous owner names or Inscriptions. The inner pages are clean with just a little foxing to the top page block. The dust wrapper is in very good condition, with just a touch of restoration to the spine tips. The end result is a dust wrapper that shows very well indeed. There is light fading to the red lettering to the spine. Correctly priced at 10s.6d.net. The book also comes with the rare Book Society Choice wrap-around band (which has received restoration to the rear panel). Waugh’s masterpiece - rare.
