The Judgement Seat by Somerset Maugham, First, Limited, Signed by Author and Artist

Sweetpea Cottage is liquidating a collection of over 50 titles from a collection of books by and about the controversial author W. Somerset Maugham. Bookmark our shop so as to not miss any of the new titles as we list them in the coming months. Serious inquiries about buying the complete collection are always welcome.

This peculiar little book is a very scarce must-have item for the complete Maugham collection. The Judgement Seat by Maugham was printed by The Centaur Press in 1934, London. It is number 125 of 150 copies, signed on the limitation page by Maugham and under the frontispiece by the artist Ulrica Hyde. The Maugham signature is strong and in ink. The Hyde signature is in pencil and somewhat less strong. The cover is black cloth with gilt lettering. Issued without a dust jacket. Condition is generally fine and bright with the exception of an edge chip missing on the upper left cover and some very minor bumping to the corners. The book is quite thin, being only 17 pages, but it is a terrific example of the printer's art. Internet research suggests that there are very few copies of this book available, and what you can find is not always in the best condition. This is an exceptional piece both in terms of scarcity and condition, possibly one of the premiere items for your collection.
