Black Mischief

by Evelyn Waugh

Chapman & Hall, 1948, [First Edition], marbled endpapers, illustrated frontispiece, colour tipped top edge (blue), hardcover, dustjacket

Very Good Condition, a little edge and shelf wear, a little rubbing and bumping to edges and corners, no inscriptions, slight lean; dustjacket shows some edge and shelf wear with some rubbing, bumping, chipping, creasing and small tears, some discoloration, small insect holes in places (see photographs)

“Set on the fictional African island of Azania, the novel chronicles the efforts of Emperor Seth, assisted by the Englishman Basil Seal, to modernize his kingdom. Profound hilarity ensues from the issuance of homemade currency, the staging of a "Birth Control Gala, " the rightful ruler's demise at his own rather long and tiring coronation ceremonies, and a good deal more mischief.”
