The Soporific DavenportFriday, April 20, 2012
I happen to have a very rare South African edition of W. Somerset Maugham's Complete Short Stories in two volumes. Volume I is called East and West and Volume 2 is The World Over. These two volumes were published in 1924. What is unusual is that the books are illustrated by notable South African photographer ( 1875-1937, from Durban) Willoughby Blew. The photos here illustrate Maugham's story The Soporific Davenport.
