The Secret Agent.London: Methuen & Co., 1907 Stock Code: 81060
First edition, first impression, first issue with the 40 pages of inserted ads at the rear. One of Conrad's very best works - a stunning novel of detection, espionage and revolution. "The Secret Agent depicts the atmosphere of Edwardian London in a psychological thriller of the anarchist underworld. Conrad's wit and chivalrous magnanimity are at their airiest in this novel." (Connolly)
Octavo. Original red cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt.
Contemporary ownership inscription to front free endpaper. Cloth rubbed, short splits at the ends of the spines, a little spotting to endpapers and title pages. A very good copy.
