1 WAUGH, EVELYN. A Handful Of Dust And Decline And Fall.
Dell Publishing Company, New York: 1962. Fourth Printing. s Softcover. Reading copy. 
A Handful of Dust is Evelyn Waugh's scathing commentary on the well-mannered death struggles of the upper classes - an irrepressibly amusing picture of society politely blowing its own brains out, with a defiant smile. In Decline and Fall, Mr. Waugh has a delightful time taking the sacred cows of England (e.g., the English public school, the traditions od Oxford, British sportsmanship, the titled gentry, the remittance man) for a blithe and madcap ride.

5 WAUGH, EVELYN. Decline And Fall.
Little, Brown and Company, Boston: 1977. 0316926191 / 9780316926195 Reprint Edition. h Hardcover with dustjacket. Good condition. 
Subtitled "A Novel of Many Manners," Evelyn Waugh's notorious first novel lays waste the "heathen idol" of British sportsmanship, the cultured perfection of Oxford, and the inviolable honor codes of the English gentleman. Within the book's unparalleled, rampant satire roam at will such characters as the Hon. Mrs. Beste-Chetwynde, Viscount Tangent, the utterly helpless hero, Paul Pennyfeather, stalked by various representatives of "the English county families baying for broken glass," that refreshing bounder who misbehaves without compunction, Captain Grimes ("I don't believe one can ever be unhappy for long provided one does exactly what one wants when one wants to"), and the equally salubrious butler, Philbrick, a graduate of the underworld who likes to tell about revolting crimes. "One of Evelyn Waugh's best. . . . Cynical satire barbed with splinters of truth. . . . Its humor, blithe and madcap, is irresistible." - The New York Times Book Review

6 WAUGH, EVELYN. Edmund Campion.
Image Books, Garden City: 1955/ Reprint Edition. s Softcover. Fair condition. 
Since the day of his death, Blessed Edmund Campion has been held in devotion throughout the English-speaking world. Scholar, priest, hero, martyr, his life exemplifies all that is fine and appealing in a human being. Mr. Waugh set out to write a readable narrative of an inspiring figure, to be read as "a simple, perfectly true story of heroism and holiness." He has succeeded admirably in bringing to life a man whose heroic qualities are as flamingly inspiring in these trouble times as they were almost four centuries ago.

17 WESTON, WILLIAM; WAUGH, EVELYN (FOREWORD). An Autobiography From The Jesuit Underground.
Farrar, Straus and Cudahy, Inc., New York: 1955. First Printing. h Hardcover, no dustjacket. Good condition. 
This autobiography was written at Seville in 1611, eight years after the author had been exiled from England. The simpl and unstudied narrative reveals a man eminently honest and anxious to recall faithfully the smallest detail of his experiences. So far from impinging on Weston's truthfulness, many of the strange stories told in this book, which led earlier writers to dismiss Weston as a credulous dupe, can now be shown to exemplify common forms of hysteria; in fact, they offder a fascinating case-history of Elizabethan melancholic disorders and reveal in an intimate manner the mental agony endured by men and women who accepted the change of religion against their conscience. Includes an Index. Translated into English from the Latin by Philip Caraman.
