WAUGH EVELYN
THE SWORD of HONOUR TRILOGY
Chapman & Hall, London. THE SWORD of HONOUR TRILOGY comprising: Men at Arms (London: Chapman & Hall 1952); Officers and Gentlemen (London: Chapman & Hall 1955) and Unconditional Surrender (London: Chapman & Hall 1961). All 3 books are FIrst UK Editions WITH NO FADING WHATSOEVER TO THE SPINES of the D/W's. 3 volumes, octavo with original blue cloth, titles to spines in gilt, top edges blue. A lovely un-faded set. Men at Arms is a near fine (or better) copy in a VG+ un-faded D/W with no fading to the spine; it has a short closed tear to the bottom edge of the front panel and a couple of small shallow chips at the base of the spine (not affecting any lettering) and a small, shallow chip to the bottom edge of the really clean back panel. Officers and Gentlemen is a near fine, bright and clean copy with offsetting to both sets of end-papers and a few foxing spots to the fore-edge. The price-clipped D/W is in very nearly fine condition with minor foxing in places to the back panel. Unconditional Surrender is a very fine copy in a very nearly fine D/W minusculy frayed at the head of the spine which is totally un-faded. To find all 3 books entirely un-faded is a rare find indeed. Photographs/scans available upon request. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover; In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: James M Pickard, ABA, ILAB, PBFA. [LEICESTER, United Kingdom]
