About this Item

First American edition. 8vo. in blue-grey cloth stamped in orange and green. 310 pps. A tight, very good example, spine darkened but lettering clearly readable, covers lightly soiled. Early Maugham novel which borders on the fantasy/science fiction genre. At the time of its publication, a Vanity Fair critique by Aleister Crowley accused Maugham of plagerizing several author's works including H.G. Wells' "The Island of Dr. Moreau". Some fifty years later, Maugham himself called the book "lush and turgid" and influenced by French popular fiction of the period. Bookseller Inventory # E4941
