Of Human Bondage
New York: George H. Doran Company, 1915. First edition, second issue, with the misprint corrected at line 4, page 257. 1 vols. 8vo. Original green linen blocked in gilt on upper cover, gilt title on spine, faint rubbing to extremities, rear cover with ink stains. Bookplate of Opha Moore, Ohio historian, and Columbus, Ohio bookseller's ticket on front pastedown. Contemporary presentation inscription on title page, "Compliments of the Season - A.J. Messier / Dec 1915." Preserved in a green cloth clamshell box. The Magnum Opus, Inscribed Inscribed simply by Maugham on the front free endpaper in ink: "For Paul North / W. Somerset Maugham." Inscribed copies of the true first (American) edition of Maugham's most famous book are extremely scarce, from any period. This inscription, although probably not contemporary with publication, has the look and feel of being early, and is in brown ink - not at all like the blue ink which Maugham typically used in later, post-war inscriptions. A very desirable inscribed copy of Maugham's most famous work, and one of the enduring novels of the twentieth century.
