. to Professor Jean Seznec, Oxford University. On note paper with the address Villa Mauresque. St. Jean - Cap Ferrat, A.M. He acknowledges receipt of Seznec's inaugural lecture.

An introverted child afflicted with a stammer, Maugham was orphaned at 10 and sent to live with his uncle, a vicar. Although he later studied medicine and completed his internship, he never practiced, having decided at an early age to devote himself to literature. He lived in grand style, spending much of his life on the French Riviera and traveling widely, particularly to East Asia and the South Pacific.

SHAKESPEARE, WILLIAM,
The Plays
0. 1825. in Nine Volumes. EIGHT volumes only [of nine], London, William Pickering, Chancery Lane, 1825; approx. 3.1 ins x 1.7 ins; each volume c. 300 pp. with 33 copper-engraved plates, and a few wood-engraved circular vignettes; contemporary maroon morocco, spines panelled in gilt with raised bands, lettered in gilt with the titles of the plays within one of the panels. triple gilt rule to boards, all edges gilt; several plates slightly or marginally embrowned, a few more than the others, text clean; Volume I lacks general title (discarded by the binder); Volume III lacks the final leaf (the last two pages of "A Winter's Tale"), title-page of Vol.IX long ago mended with neat stitching; bindings a little rubbed at extremities, a little darkened, bottom corner of rear board of Volume III scratched; generally very attractive in its miniature morocco binding, though a little used, and internally clean, but missing Volume II as well as the one leaf of Volume III. Spielman 456. "The illustrated edition of the Pickering Shakespeare is rare in itself as only a small number of the sets was issued with the engraved frontispieces". He quotes Sheringham, writing in "The Connoisseur" [Nov. 1902]: "The plates of the Shakespeare in particular, 38 in number, were all lost, and the later copies of course are without them." The plates were engraved after Thomas Stothard - except for that of Puck, which is after Sir Joshua Reynolds' already celebrated painting.Since there are usually four plates in each of our volumes, we guess that our Volume IX, with only three plates, may be short of one plate.

SWIFT, JONATHAN, AND OTHERS,
The Examiners
0. for the Year 1711. To which is prefix'd A Letter to the Examiner. London .. for John Morphew .. and A.Dodd.. 1712; xvi, 306pp. [12 pp.] index, [2 pp.] adverts; 12mo; contemporary panelled calf, spine gilt in compartments with raised bands, red leather lettering-piece; binding used and worn, front hinge split but firmly held on the strings, splits in rear hinge, trace of older tape along inner margin of front paste-down, early name - "Edwart Jones, Bafonwen" at top of rear free endpaper. "The Examiner" included contributions by Swift, who took over the editorship. According to Hawkesworth, in Volume VII of his 1760 edition of Swift's Works, Swift's own contributions were Nos 13 - 44. This volume reprinted the periodical in a handy form for contemporary readers, and provides the modern reader with part of the context of Swift's papers. As the printer writes: "It is conceived, That altho' these Papers were writ for the Public Service, upon Incidents, as they daily happened; yet in them are treated several Subjects, which may be of general and lasting Use. Neither perhaps will Posterity be unwilling to see several Observations made, and Facts related, concerning the late Disposition of Affairs, which they will probably meet nowhere else ..".
