W. Somerset Maugham
British novelist and playwright.
Maugham, who qualified as a surgeon at St Thomas’s Hospital, London, published his magnificent autobiographical novel, Of Human Bondage, in 1915. He later visited Tahiti and the Far East, which provided the inspiration for The Moon and Sixpence (1919).
In 1928 Maugham settled in the South of France, where he produced his satirical masterpiece Cakes and Ale (1930). In America from 1940 to 1946 he wrote The Razor’s Edge (1945).
He is probably best known for his short stories, several of which were filmed, including Quartet (1949).
This is a very fine signature in dark blue fountain pen ink, on a 4" x 3.5" slip of paper that has been laid to lined paper and then trimmed to size. In very good condition and perfect for display mounting.
