Scott-King's Modern Europe

Evelyn Waugh

"SO FAR AS THE PRESS OF NEUTRALIA IS CONCERNED, NOTHING HAPPENED": FIRST EDITION OF EVELYN WAUGH'S SCOTT-KING'S MODERN EUROPE, IN ORIGINAL DUST JACKET

WAUGH, Evelyn. Scott-King's Modern Europe. (London): Chapman & Hall, 1947. Slim octavo, original navy cloth, original dust jacket. $300.

First edition of this novella about a schoolmaster's summer holidays in a fictional totalitarian state.

"Returning more nearly to the mood of his earlier works, this short novel, of a traditional English schoolmaster's exposure to the materialism and totalitarianism of a middle-European country, is a skillful satiric exercise" (Kirkus). A few stray pencil marks.

Book with a few spots of foxing to edges of text block, dust jacket with light foxing and only slight toning to spine. A near-fine copy.
