First trade edition. 8vo. Original light brown wrappers printed in brown. London, William Heinemann.
This play was first acted in 1903, at which time Maugham had about 150 copies printed up (by Chapman & Hall) for rehearsals and to give out on opening night; it also appeared then as a supplement of the fortnightly review (also published by C&H). It was not until December 1911 (dated 1912) that this trade edition was published. This copy, in the original wrappers, is in excellent condition (one tear in the rear/spine wrapper, bottom left corner slightly crumpled, and a small slightly-darkened square on the front cover where a price sticker may once have resided).
