Item Description: William Heinemann, London, 1915. Hardback. Book Condition: Very Good. No Jacket. 1st Edition. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. 1st impression in publisher's original blue/green cloth with gilt titles and Moorish motif to front board and gilt titles to spine. Misprint on line 4 of page 257 'help' for 'helped' is present, pp [viii] 648. The book has been professionally rebacked but without disturbing the original joints externally and retaining the original endpapers which have gutters reinforced so that now the binding is tight, sound and square and fully serviceable. There is wear to the covers with minor loss of original cloth at spine ends (now replaced) and the spine titles are faint but remain legible. Internally no inscriptions, some paper loss less than the size of an old sixpence to front pastedown, endpapers tanned and some limited closed tear damage to 2/3 pages one of which has some moderate soiling. Generally a very good copy of a very scarce book in its original covers. 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 000455

Item Description: 1915. A Novel. London: William Heinemann, (1915). Original blue-green cloth. First English Edition, published one day after Doran's edition in New York. This was Maugham's famed autobiographical novel about~Philip Carey, who has a club foot and who attends King's School, Tercanbury [Maugham had a stammer and attended King's School, Canterbury]; who rejects the idea of the ministry and who studies in Heidelberg and later becomes a doctor [like Maugham]; who becomes obsessed with a vulgar waitress, Mildred Rogers, who goes to a bad end [see Liza of Lambeth], etc. But the novel succeeds because of its unflinching honesty and its devastating account of loneliness, the most tragic of all human conditions. [CGEL]~This copy is in very good-plus condition (there is little wear, but the "gilt" lettering on the binding is rather dull -- because this is a wartime book with faux gilt). We have never had a copy of this book in dust jacket, and such copies may in fact be quite rare: the original one showed Philip with the "wrong" foot a club-foot, but this was discovered after only a few hundred copies had gone out -- and it is not known how many of the copies were equipped with a revised jacket or with no jacket at all (Toole Stott observes, "I have been unable to obtain a copy of either jacket or to find anyone who recalls a description of them"). In any event, this UK edition is many times scarcer than the US edition. Toole Stott A22a. A Modern Library 100 selection. Bookseller Inventory # 12614

Item Description: Doubleday, Doran, Garden City, 1936. Hardcover. First Edition. The First Trade Edition of the First Illustrated Edition of this famous book. INSCRIBED and SIGNED by the author on the front free endpaper: "For James W. Poling/to whose labours I owe many happy hours/W. Somerset Maugham." Poling was an author of several books, including THE FINAL FACE OF EVE with Evelyn Lancaster, and an editor at Doubleday, Doran, one it appears who worked on Maugham's books. Perhaps Maugham's greatest effort, OF HUMAN BONDAGE was made into a film in 1934 starring Bette Davis in her breakout performance. It was remade in 1946 with Eleanor Parker as the manipulative Mildred Rogers and again in 1964 with Kim Novak as Mildred. This edition came out twenty years after the book's success and is graced with illustrations by Randolph Schwabe. There was a limited signed edition of this book issued simultaneously with this trade edition. We have had many copies of it over the years, but we have never come across a trade edition inscribed by Maugham, let alone one with such a fine inscription. Spine sunned. Very Good, lacking the dustwrapper. Bookseller Inventory # 011720
