Port. frontis + 3 leaves plates. 8vo, grey cloth, gilt lettering to spine. "'A Little Learning' is the first volume of Mr Waugh's autobiography. He has taken as amodel for it his own biography of Ronald Knox; and he could not have done better, for when that book appeared in 1959 it was immediately recognized as one of the best 'Lives' of the century. '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
