A Novel About Journalists

WAUGH, Evelyn

IN SUPPRESSED DUSTWRAPPER AND WRAP-AROUND BAND

WAUGH, Evelyn Scoop A Novel About Journalists

Chapman & Hall, 1938.

First edition, first issue with 'as' in the last line of page 88. Original marbled cloth in scarce suppressed first issue dustwrapper with the remains of 'Daily Beast' on the front panel. With scarce wraparound band. A fine copy in a very good dustwrapper indeed which just shows a little wear to the head of the spine and upper corners, but is generally very bright and crisp.

The Daily Beast and its owner Lord Copper, were clear pastiches of The Daily Express and Lord Beaverbrook. Beaverbrook took exception and threatened legal action, causing the publishers to reprint the dustwrapper without the Daily Beast masthead (which used the Express's font). Copies of the suppressed issue are scarce.
