The Complete Short Stories of W. Somerset Maugham: Book I: East and West, Book II: The World Over

by W. Somerset Maugham

Condition: Very Good-/None


This multi-volume set is in very good condition. The front, back, and spine of the cover boards have minimal wear. The edges have little bumping. The previous owners name and motto is affixed to the inside of the front cover boards of both volumes. The pages are yellowing in both volumes and there are no marking on any pages of both books.

"This book contains all the stories I have written that are not included in East and West. The tales in that collection were of about the same length and written on the same scale and so it seemed convenient to publish them together in a single volume. Most of the stories which I have now gathered together are very much shorter. Some were written many years ago, Others more recently. They appeared in magazines and were afterwards issued in book form. To the first lot I gave the title of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and except for Ray Long, who was then its editor, would never have been written....: - Preface from The Complete Short Stories of W. Somerset Maugham: Book I: East and West, Book II: The World Over
