Footnotes

  • ONE OF APPROXIMATELY 50 LARGE PAPER COPIES PRINTED ON HANDMADE PAPER, AND SPECIALLY BOUND FOR PRESENTATION BY THE AUTHOR. The inscription is dated 9 July 1957, the day on which Waugh attended a Foyle Literary Luncheon to promote Gilbert Pinfold. "The book was so evidently autobiographical that it would have been impossible for him to have gone through the charade of warning his audience not to associate Pinfold with Waugh. He declared the book to be based on his own experience of going 'off my head' three years earlier" (David Wykes, Evelyn Waugh. A Literary Life, 1999).

    Provenance: Patrick Balfour, 3rd Baron Kinross (1904-1976).
