MAUGHAM, W. Somerset.

  • Quantity available: 1
London: Heinemann,, 1928. Inscribed by the author, together with a letter Octavo. Original blue cloth, titles to front board and spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a quarter blue morocco slipcase. An excellent copy in the dust jacket with faded spine panel, and a couple of shallow chips and nicks. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Harold Kamp from W. Somerset Maugham July 6, 1928", together with a letter from Maugham regarding the opportunity to inscribe this copy. One of the author's undoubted masterpieces and of considerable scarcity in inscribed state. Kamp was evidently a keen collector of contemporary fiction and an effective solicitor of authors' inscriptions. Loren & Frances Rothschild Collection V, 149; Stott A37a.
