Inscribed copies of the true first (American) edition of Maugham's most famous book are extremely scarce, from any period.

        Pictorial Mileage Road Book, California Edition

      Richmond, CA: Motogram Company, 1915. Soft cover. Good. 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall. A fascinating look into early automobile culture. This motorist's guide of California consists of small (1 1/4" x 13/16") photographs that show the road at every mile as taken through the windshield. Road conditions are described as well. The company boasts that their maps, which have been custom produced, "show just what the motorist needs, and no more." If "what the motorist needs" is indeed maps that consist merely of lines that go from one dot to another with little geographic context. Although it is easy to poke fun of these simple designs, how different are they from today's GPS navigation systems that merely bark out directions? Flexible board covers rubbed on edges, corners creased. A few pages have tears and stains; at least one motorist found this a useful tool.

      1915 - [First World War]. (CHURCHILL, Winston, et al.). "A SOUVENIR OF THE GREAT WAR." Circa 1914-1915. A piece of linen, 19 1/2 by 24 1/2 inches, printed with 28 portraits of heads-of-state and political and military leaders, mostly from England and Commonwealth countries, but also including those from allied countries: France, Belgium, Serbia, Russia and Japan. A central motif representing Britain's pact with Belgium, wherein Britain promised to aid Belgium if her neutrality was breached, is superimposed over flags of the allied nations. "A scrap of paper," the German Chancellor von Bethman-Hollweg's derisive remark about the pact, is printed next to the document with an arrow pointing toward it. But arching above and below the document are the phrases "Liberty & Peace" and "Our Word Our Bond." Portraits of Lord Kitchener, General Joffre, Grand Duke Nicholas, and General French, the top British, French and Russian military leaders, are printed above the pact. The remaining portraits form a border around the cloth; moving clockwise from the right corner, they are: King of Servia [sic], Czar of Russia, General Botha, Gen. Smith Dorrien, Gen. D. Henderson, Gen. Allenby, Col. Sam Hughes, King of Belgium, General Le Man, Lord Landsdowne, Rear Admiral Beatty, Hon. Winston Churchill, Lord Fisher, Admiral Jellicoe, Gen. Douglas Haig, Sir Edward Grey, Pres. Poincare, Hon. A. Bonar Law, Hon. H. H. Asquith, Lord Roberts, Maharajah of Behar, Viceroy of India, King George V, Mikado. Printed in sepia, red, blue and yellow, and mounted on mat board; the cloth is lightly age-toned, and the blue has faded to light grey, but very good overall.

        [Stock Book]: Triangle Distributing Corporation Preferred

      New York: W.N. Perrin & Company. [circa 1915]. Film corporation stock book. Oblong octavo. Green boards with red canvas spine and gilt lettering. Wear to the extremities, staple holes on the front endpapers and light tidemarks, 45 of 50 stock certificates still attached along with the receipts of four others, very good plus. A stock book for the Triangle Distributing Corporation, the distribution arm of the Triangle Film Corporation, the first vertically integrated film production company, founded by D.W. Griffith, Mack Sennett, and Thomas Ince in 1915. The idea was that by producing feature-length films with the industry's premiere talent, including Mary Pickford, Lillian Gish, Roscoe "Fatty" Arbuckle, Douglas Fairbanks, Sr., and others, Triangle could charge more per picture. The studio produced several notable films but mismanagement and losses from Griffith's epic Intolerance doomed the venture by 1918. Accompanied by a copy of the book, Dreams for Sale: The Rise and Fall of the Triangle Film Corporation by Kalton C. Lahue. An interesting document from the nascent days of silent films. .

      1915 - A Tale of Mystery and Marvel. Philadelphia: J. B. Lippincott Company, n.d. [1915]. Original dark green cloth pictorially decorated in grey, light blue and orange. First Separate Edition, American issue. This is a story about a man's effort to rule the world, by dominating it from the air in his nefarious flying machine "The Terrible." The tale demonstrates the evolution of Verne's cynicism: earlier he had written THE CLIPPER OF THE CLOUDS, in which Robur the inventor tours the world in his magnificent flying machine -- but now Robur the Conqueror is back, seeking world domination instead of scientific discovery.~This tale was initially published in French in 1904, and then in 1911 it was included in Vincent Parke's fifteen-volume WORKS OF JULES VERNE -- its first appearance in English. Sampson Low published the book on its own near the end of 1914, and then Lippincott followed with an American edition (from the British sheets) the following year, as here. Though not mentioned on the title page, there are many illustrations.~This is an attractive copy, in just-about-fine condition (one tiny nick in the spine head, a few minor scratches); unlike the UK edition, the spine lettering is in gold and is thus quite legible -- because the UK was at war but the US was not (yet). In our experience, some of the last Verne titles are among the toughest to find, and this is a good example. Taves & Michaluk V054; Myers 37. [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
