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

An attractive copy. Stott A21a. Of Human Bondage is a semi-autobiographical novel and is considered Maugham's masterpiece. The text is a bildungsroman featuring the protagonist Philip Carey, a clubfooted orphan who is raised by his religious aunt and uncle. From a young age, Carey yearns for adventure and moves to Paris to pursue a career in art. Subsequently, he moves to London to study medicine, where he meets the androgynous Mildred, with whom he begins a love affair that will forever alter the course of his life. Of Human Bondage was adapted into three films in 1934, 1946, and 1964.

"The novel was coolly received in Britain and America and became a best-seller only after an effusive review by the influential American critic and distinguished novelist Theodore Dreiser in the New Republic (25 December 1915), in which he described the book as of 'the utmost importance' and its author as a 'great artist'" (ODNB).
