First edition. Large 8vo., original blue cloth, dust jacket. London, Chapman & Hall. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper: ?For Fr. Martin D'Arcy S.J., with deep affection from Evelyn Waugh, 8th October 1959? The inter-war years saw an extraordinary boom in the numbers of Catholic converts, and D'Arcy ?an unashamed tuft-hunter . [who] . faithfully followed the Jesuit tradition established in England of concentrating on the upper echelons of society, on the well-tried principle of the bigger the stone the bigger the ripple.? (Hastings), received Waugh into the Church in 1930: his ?fine, slippery mind? (Waugh), was the perfect foil for Waugh's doubts and certainties, and Waugh was to depend on his faith profoundly: Nancy Mitford once asked Waugh how he reconciled 'being so horrible with being a Christian. He replied rather sadly that were he not a Christian he would be even more horrible . & anyway would have committed suicide years ago'? (Hastings). D'Arcy ?so far from Ronald in mind, so near him in friendship? (Waugh) preached at his funeral in 1957. A near fine copy in dust jacket, preserved in a quarter leather Solander box.
