1 MAUGHAM, W. Somerset OF HUMAN BONDAGE
New York George H. Doran Company 1915 True First Edition Green Cloth Good No Jacket Thick Octavo Signed by Author
First issue without the Doran monogram on the copyright page; second state with the corrected word, "helped" at line 4 of p. 257. [ Stott A21]. This book is regarded as Maugham's best work. This American edition preceded the British edition by one day. This copy has an intriguing extra leaf at the front which is inscribed, "To P. W. Wagenseller/ from W. Somerset Maugham / Chicago. Oct 1920." Maugham's wife, Syrie, had an interior design firm in Chicago between the wars. This signed sheet is tipped onto the front free endpaper, and is slightly smaller (which suggests that it was removed from a smaller book and added to this copy to enhance it). This bulky novel has a vertical crease in the title and blank leaves, and the extremities are worn, the heel of the spine frayed, with hints of a glass ring on the top cover, occasional pencilled arrows. 004900 
Price: 750.00 USD
