About this Item

The speaker in Maugham's novel is one Ashenden, an author, whose memories of youth and early manhood disclose piece by piece this entire life of Edward Driffield, Grand Old Man of Letters.The career of this doyen of literature is a mischievous commentary on the literary world of England from 1880 to to-day(1930), and the subtlety of his indirect criticism emerging from a story that is full of unexpected twists. A wonderfully clean and unmarked copy of the first British edition of Maugham's famous book, with a slight bump to lower spine end. Jacket is unclipped (7/6net.) on Spine. A near fine jacket which would be fine except for a tiny chip at front corner and very slight wear to bottom of spine. A great collectible. Bookseller Inventory # 000392
