First Edition. H. W. W. dustjacket art and endpaper illustrations. An attractive copy of Waugh's third novel. "Seth was black, but he had been to Oxford, and admired the ways of Western Civilization. He was sorry when his savage troops ate his father, but that was part of his coup d'Etat. Basil Seal had known, taken up, and dropped Seth at Oxford; when he read of Seth's accession, he took his mother's jewels and a check from his mistress, and sailed for Azania." Near Fine but for usual discoloration to green cloth, in Very Good plus (about as nice as ever found for this title) dustjacket with some tanning to spine, couple of pin holes at mid front panel.
