xvi, 173 p.; 21 cm. Published in 1897 under title: The Children of the Sea.

This account of the voyage of a sailing ship from Bombay Harbour to the Port of London explores the psychological pressures on a group of nineteenth-century seamen as they face extremes of nature and the secrets and evasions of two of their comrades." Henry James thought it "the very finest and strongest picture of the sea and sea life our language possesses." Good; pages age-browned, especially outer margins. Stock#47114.

Publisher: Philadelphia, John C. Winston, 1949.
xxviii, 417 p., illus. (8 color), portrait; 22 cm. Maugham's introduction is insightful, but to trim the volume down and speed the narrative many beautiful passages-- in the Try Works, for example-- have been cut. The black & white illustrations are evocative. Very Good; no dust jacket. Stock#47525.
