THE RAZOR'S EDGE. A Novel. Stock code: 13436

Author / Artist:

Maugham, William Somerset


First continental edition. Publisher's original brown paper covered boards with beige cloth spine and corners, titles in dark brown to the upper board and spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and tight, the contents clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which has a couple of short closed tears with associated creasing to the top edge. An attractive example.




A scarce book, published in the same year as the American and UK first editions, this printing states on the copyright page that it "must not be introduced in the British Empire or the USA". The dustwrapper is identical in design to that of the American edition.
