East of Suez by Somerset Maugham, First American Edition, w/SCARCE DJ

Sweetpea Cottage is liquidating a collection of over 50 titles from a collection of books by and about the controversial author 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 listing is for one of Maugham’s more difficult books to obtain, the first American edition of East of Suez, published by George H. Doran in 1922, NY. Condition is near fine with a beautiful dust jacket that is almost never present. The dust jacket has some minor chipping along the top edge. Overall, a bright tight copy of a lesser known work by this controversial author. Basil Rathbone starred in the original theatrical production of this play and it served as the basis of a Raoul Walsh film that featured Edmud Lowe, Rockliffe Fellowes and Noah Beery. This item is tough to find and competitively priced.
