SOLD - When the Going Was Good - Evelyn Waugh 1946 - Duckworth, London - First Edition A fine copy in superb dust jacket of Evelyn Waugh’s selective travel journal which includes one folding map of Guiana and a Henry lamb portrait frontispiece of Waugh aged 26, and clearly attempting to look like the experienced and worldly-wise author that he was to become, pipe-smoking, tweed clad, and about to spill his beer.

"The idea of picking and choosing among his journals of a roving life was a good one and has resulted in a readable and strangely nostalgic book." (from a contemporary review).
