4 WAUGH, Evelyn. DAVIE, Michael, ed. Diaries of Evelyn Waugh. First Edition in dustjacket.
Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1976, ISBN:0297771264 
WAUGH, Evelyn. The Diaries of Evelyn Waugh. Edited by Michael Davie. London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, (1976). First Printing. Pp. (14),3-814,(6). 8vo,brown cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Evelyn Waugh kept a diary almos t continuously from the age of seven until a year before his death in 1966.Extracts from the diaries caused a sensation when they were published by T he Observer in 1973, and a further stir when Christopher Sykes quoted them in his Waugh biography last year. Now they are to be published virtually infull: a unique literary document of 300,000 words which provides the backg round to the novels which made Waugh famous, and gives a continuously sharpand baleful view of the social history of our times. In his diaries, Waugh is ruthlessly candid about his friends and acquaintances, many of them as celebrated as himself, often malicious, and invariably entertaining. The publication of the Waugh diaries is a major literary event; throwing new light not only on the work of a writer whom Graham Greene called 'the greatest novelist of his generation' but on the character of a puzzling, cantankerous and formidable man." - from the dustjacket.

7 WAUGH, Evelyn. AMORY, Mark, ed. Letters of Evelyn Waugh. Second Printing in dustjacket.
Weidenfeld and Nicolson, London, 1981, ISBN:0297776576 
WAUGH, Evelyn. The Letters of Evelyn Waugh. Edited by Mark Amory. London: Weidenfeld and Nicolson, (1981). Second Impression. Pp. (6),vii-xx,1-664,(4). 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine. "Evelyn Waugh was the last of the great letter-writers, and his witty, elegant correspondence to a widecircle of friends contains more than a touch of malice. In the 1920s Waugh wrote to a schoolfriend about his undergraduate escapades at Oxford and to Harold Acton and Henry Green of his unhappy jobs, his literary plans and t he break-up of his first marraige. In the 1930s his boisterous letters to Lady Mary Lygon recount his successes, sociual life and travels in Ethiopia and South America. During the war, writing to his second wife, Laura Herbert, he revealed the strength of his love for her more vividly than has appeared elsewhere, as well as recording the events that were to be turned into his war novels. With peace came some of the funniest of all his writings, inspired by worldly, fashionable women such as Ann Fleming, Lady Diana Cooper and Nancy Mitford. Politics are rarley mentioned in Waugh's letters and he discusses writing only with someone he recognizes as an equal, like Graham Greene. His deeply felt religious beliefs are made explicit to Thomas Merton and John Betjeman. But Waugh's main concern is to amuse, to describe the events of his life in a way that will give pleasure -- and in this he is triumphantly successful. Waugh has at the same time created a record of hislife more formal than diaries but more intimate than autobiopgraphy, and t hus more revealing and truthful than either." - from the dustjacket.

8 WAUGH, Evelyn KNOX, Ronald Life on the Right Reverend Ronald Knox, Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford, and Pronotary Apostolic to His Holiness Pope Pus XII. First British Editionin dustjacket
Chapman & Hall, London, 1959, 
WAUGH, Evelyn. The Life on the Right Reverend Ronald Knox, Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford, and Pronotary Apostolic to His Holiness Pope Pus XII. Compiled from the original sources by Evelyn Waugh. (London) : Chapman & Hall, 1959. First Edition. Pp (8),9-[358],(2), fontispiece portrait + 7 pp plates. Index. ,8vo, blue cloth, gilt letering to spine. "Ronald Knox lacked only longevity to have been a national figure. He died in 1957 at the age of 69 with his worK uncompleted, essentially a private person; not, indeed, with his promise unfulfilled, for he had established his mastership of half adozen literary forms. He was priest, scholar and artist, and when these vo cations conflicted, it was always his priesthood which came first. He was known and loved by some hundreds of all ages and degrees, and his works werecherished by some thousands. His wit was the protection of a subtle, sensi tive and very holy man. His influence was unobtrusive and pervasive. Beforehis death he gave his approval to the project of Mr Evelyn Waugh's recordi ng his life. His family and his friends have given every help to the biographer. This is the 'official life' of a man who will without doubt be made the subject of many studies. Mr Waugh has soueht to give the essential factsof his life and some hints of the character which formed it. This book mus t for many years be a textbook for the critics and theologians who nwill bring their specialized skills to the examination of a series of achievementswhose fame will increase with the years."

Port. frontis + 3 leaves plates. 8vo, grey cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "'A Little Learning' is the first volume of Mr Waugh's autobiography.

'A Little Learning' treats of Mr Waugh's family and childhood; and of his education at Lancing and Oxford, which is associated by so many readers with 'Brideshead Revisited'. It ends with an account of his experiences as a schoolmaster at a private school inNorth Wales." - from the dustjacket. Very good in price-clipped dustjacket . A tidy copy. 45.00

"Author, publisher, traveller,cricketer, lover of wine; Alec Waugh has been all these in the course of a life which has brought him a host of friends around the world. He is a war m person who knows a good friend when he sees one and is revered by all those with whom there has been mutual acceptance. This book contains his memories of many famous writers and some figures no longer so well remembered inthe period between the wars.

This throws invaluable light on the early years of a great but difficult man and reveals an insight which only one so close as a brother could have.Further, Alec Waugh as friend, admirer and critic writes of many literary figures of the same period -- describing, in passing, the social scene, thesetting in which their lives were lived. Included are: Sir Edmund Gosse, E . Temple Thurston, Desmond Coke, Ernest Rhys, Grand Richards, Frank Swinnerton, Robert Nichols, Robert Graves, Siegfried Sassoon, Richard Aldington, Hugh Kingsmill, Gerald Hopkins, Milton Hayes, JF.
