First Edition. Signed presentation copy inscribed by the author, W. Somerset Maugham to Harpo Marx. Inscribed: ÒFor Harpo Marx, Who has amused me always, W. Somerset Maugham.Ó From the library of Harpo Marx, the great clown of the Marx Brothers comedy team, and his wife actress Susan Fleming Marx, former member of the Ziegfeld Follies and star of early talking films like Million Dollar Legs with W.C. Fields. Fine copy in a very good plus to near fine dust jacket. With a charming bookplate illustrated by Susan Marx with a drawing of Harpo in his comic character which reads: ÒFROM THE LIBRARY OF HARPO & SUSAN MARX.Ó Harpo Marx first became friends with Maugham in the late 1920s when Alexander Woollcott took Harpo to MaughamÕs home, the Villa Mauresque, on the French Riviera. As recorded in MarxÕs memoirs, Harpo Speaks, the two hit it off immediately and during a tour of the MaughamÕs upstairs master bedroom Harpo stripped off his clothes and dove off the balcony into MaughamÕs pool. Woollcott, a bit startled looked to MaughamÕs reaction. Maugham then proceeded to take off his clothes and dove in to join him. Harpo also records a time a the Broadway premiere of the play Dead End, in 1936, he spotted Maugham seated several rows behind him in the audience. ÒI crawled on on all fours, monkey-fashion, across the tops of the seats.when Maugham said, ÔTerribly sorry I havenÕt a banana for you, Harpo.ÕÓ. Codice inventario libreria 11462J
