Notes

First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "For Harold Kamp from W. Somerset Maugham July 6, 1928", together with a letter from Maugham regarding the opportunity to inscribe this copy. One of the author's undoubted masterpieces and of considerable scarcity in inscribed state. Kamp was evidently a keen collector of contemporary fiction and an effective solicitor of authors' inscriptions.
