What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, With Dustwrapper
The first edition of this novella by the noted author Evelyn Waugh. Published for the first time in an abridged form in the Cornhill Magazine in 1947, same year as the publication in book form. First thus.
Following Mr Scott-King, a middle-aged school master, who has found his affinity in an obscure seventeenth century poet, Bellorius, who dimly lived in that part of the Habsburg Empire which is now totalitarian state of Neutralia.
The Neutralian invite Scott-King to take part in the Bellorius tercentenary celebrations, and so the protagonist is plunged into the nightmare of totalitarian hospitality and into the life of Modern Europe.
