The Razor The Razor The Razor


At auction is this 1945 copy of Somerset Maugham's novel The Razor's Edge.  It was originally published in 1943 and 1944 by McCall Corporation and then again in 1945 by the Blakiston Company in Philadelphia.  This book bears the autograph of W. Somerset Maugham but I do not know if it is an authentic signature or a facsimile.  I have not had the book appraised.   The book itself is in excellent condition and the only problem is with the book cover which has been repaired with tape by a previous owner.  The book is 8 X 6 X 1 inches and contains 246 pages.  It is hard bound, of course.  The synopsis of the story follows:  A young American's quest for faith leads him to renounce his fiancee and the opportunity for wealth and position.  His search takes him all over the world and reaches its climax in India, where he attains the experience of the Absolute which he has been seeking.
