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

"Maugham has no rival in the portrayal of human emotion, and he creates an almost unbearable tension for his readers as Philip suffers, despairs and pays the price for passion -- a price that is almost too high." - from the rear coverof the Penguin edition. Some light sunned discolouration to spine, with light rubbing to some of the gilt tooling on the spine, slight shelfwear, a couple of instances of marginal smuding, else a very nice, tight, bright copy. 2,500.00 net.
