First trade edition. 8vo. Original dark blue cloth with dust jacket. London, William Heinemann.

This is a fine copy in a near-fine jacket (very slightly soil and rubbing). This is a signed presentation copy to Frederick Bason, Maugham's close friend and first bibliographer. The half-title inscription is "for Fred - the last stories i shall write about in the far east - W. Somerset Maugham 1933". In all, quite a nice association between Maugham and a young man who, for five years, was one of his closest acquaintances. In a stout, functional leatherbound case.
