    W. Somerset Maugham. The Making of a Saint. London, 1898. First British edition, first issue. Publisher's green cloth rubbed and worn. Rear joint worn and splitting. Spine ends fraying and split. Good. Published less than a month after the American edition.

    More Information:

    Octavo. 303 pages.


    Publisher's green ribbed cloth with gold stamping on the spine. Spine is leaning. Top edge  gilt; fore-edge and bottom edge roughly trimmed. Cloth is rubbed and edge-worn with darkening along the spine. Rear joint is worn and beginning to split. There appears to have been a repair to the upper portion of the front joint, probably reattaching a split in the cloth. Spine ends are fraying and split. Endpapers are uniformly darkened and hinges are tender. Front free endpaper is lightly chipped and almost detached. Good.


    Stott A2b. Morgan, p. 67.

    From the Collection of Norman F. Moore.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
