Footnotes

  • An important association copy, inscribed by Waugh to Powell, who was at time working as a reader at Duckworth. Having known each other at Oxford, the two writers met again whilst attending courses at the L.C.C. school (Waugh in cabinet-making, Powell in typography). "A little while later, very hard up and seeking a commission to write a book, it was Tony who introduced me to my first publisher" (Waugh, A Little Learning, 1964, p.201). The book met with good critical reaction, exemplified by a "front-page spread in the Times Literary Supplement [which] ensured good publicity, but there was little money to be made from such a book" (ODNB).
