WAUGH, Evelyn The Ordeal of Gilbert Pinfold A Conversation Piece

Chapman & Hall, 1957.

First edition, one of about fifty large paper copies printed on hand made paper, for private circulation. Original red cloth titled in gilt to the spine. Bottom and fore edges uncut. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front end paper to his friend and biographer, Christopher Sykes, "Christopher with love. Look out. It might be you next. Evelyn" A near fine copy with a touch of fading to the spine.

Author and biographer, Sykes was a close friend of Robert Byron, with whom he co-authored the 1935 work, Innocence and Design. He first met Waugh in 1929 shortly after the collapse of Waugh's first marriage and the pair became firm friends. Sykes is now best known for his biography of Waugh, published in 1975.
