    More Information:

    First edition. Inscribed by Maugham on the front endpaper, "For / Paul Moser / W. S. Maugham." Octavo. 307 pages.


    Publisher's gray cloth with white stamping and a photo of a scene from the production pasted to the front. Edges and spine ends of binding are rubbed. Darkened spine has a slight lean. Endpapers are toned and hinges are loose. There is a sizeable abrasion with glue residue on the front pastedown, perhaps from the removal of a bookplate. A few pages are dampstained, affecting one of the photo plates. Overall, very good.


    Contains four photo illustrations from a production of the play. David Gray adapted Maugham's play into this novelization. Rarely found signed by Maugham, as Maugham did not actually write this item. 

    Stott E1.

    From the Collection of Norman F. Moore.
