Scoop. A Novel About Journalists.

London: Chapman and Hall Ltd., 1938. [Literature] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (20 x 13cm), pp.308; [1], advertisement; [1], blank. Elegantly bound in half navy calf, gilt-lettered with twin red morocco title labels, spine ruled in six compartments with raised bands, matching cloth sides. A lovely fine copy in a handsome recent leather binding. The supreme Fleet Street novel. Waugh's fifth novel concerns the rush of war reporters to a thinly-disguised Abyssinia (now Ethiopia). "With this book England's wittiest novelist sets a new standard for comic extravaganza. This novel reads as though it had been formed with a slapstick but given its final shaping with a lancet" (from a contemporary review). Item #54386
