Second edition, published in the same month as the first. Presentation copy inscribed on the front free endpaper, “To A. & W. Rothenstein, affectionately from Joseph Conrad, 1911”. With the recipient’s bookplate on the front free endpaper. Rothenstein, an artist, was a friend and staunch supporter of Conrad, often loaning him money in light of his “chronic prodigality” (ODNB). The A in the dedication refers to Rothenstein’s wife, Alice. Provenance: from the library of Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger, with his bookplate.

Octavo. Original red cloth, titles to spine gilt. Spine faded, cloth lightly rubbed at extremities, endpapers toned, spotting to edges of text block and scattered through contents. A very good copy.
