Third impression. Presentation copy inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, “To Will Rothenstein, affectionately, Jph Conrad, 20 June 1905”. With Rothenstein’s bookplate. Rothenstein, an artist, was a friend and staunch supporter of Conrad, often loaning him money in light of his “chronic prodigality” (ODNB). Inscribed copies of Lord Jim are rare; only seven copies have appeared at auction since 1991, and of those only two were the UK edition. Provenance: from the library of Stanley J. Seeger, with his bookplate.

Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt and to upper board in black. Lightly rubbed at extremities, corners bumped, spine a little toned, endpapers tanned and spotted, upper hinge cracked, lower hinge starting. A very good copy.
