Why We Love This

Noblesse Oblige: An Enquiry into the Identifiable Characteristics of the English Aristocracy by Nancy Mitford. London: Hamish Hamilton Ltd., 1956. Third impression. Nancy Mitford set off a storm of protest with this minor collection of essays about the class system in England. Includes straight-faced contributions from Evelyn Waugh and John Betjeman. Illustrated by Osbert Lancaster. A very good copy, with slight wear to dust jacket. First end page has erased dedication.
