A Writer's Notebook
Somerset Maugham's notebook from 1892 to 1949
First edition thus. Hardback in dustwrapper. 22 × 14.5cm, 349pp.
From 1892, when he was 18, until 1949, when this book was first published, Somerset Maugham kept a notebook. Part autobiographical, part confessional, this is a collection of Maugham's observations, confidences, aspirations and arbitrary jottings.
The book is in very good condition, with a little foxing to the page edges. The dustwrapper has small areas of loss at the spine ends and minor chipping to the edges but is otherwise good and is now within a protective sleeve.
