Description du livre : London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1911, 1911. Octavo. Original red linen-grain cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Custom red morocco-backed slipcase and chemise, spine lettered in gilt. Spine lightly faded, untrimmed edges of text-block a little spotted, an excellent copy. First edition, presentation copy to John Galsworthy and his wife, Ada, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Jack and Ada with love from J. C. 1911". Conrad first met Galsworthy in 1893 on the sailing-ship Torrens. Galsworthy, bound for Cape Town, boarded the ship at Adelaide and encountered its first mate, the future novelist, angry and black with coal dust; the two writers became lifelong friends. Under Western Eyes is the last book in the astonishing sequence of novels that constituted Conrad's major phase, beginning with The Nigger of the "Narcissus" (1897), taking in Lord Jim, Youth, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, and "The Secret Sharer". "With Under Western Eyes he even dared to challenge (and arguably surpassed) Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment" (ODNB). N° de réf. du libraire 48397

Description du livre : London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1896, 1896. 2 works, octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. Housed in green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Binding a little rubbed and marked, endpapers tanned. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Mr. W. T. Hornaday with the Author's most friendly regards. 22 March, 1896". Hornaday (1854–1937) was an American zoologist and conservationist who is credited with the preservation of a number of species including the North American bison. He helped found the Smithsonian National Zoo and in 1896 was made the director of the New York Zoological Park. Hornaday was the author of ten books, and one of his earliest published works was Free Rum on the Congo and What It Is Doing There (1887), a copy of which accompanies the present item. His work subsequently appeared alongside Conrad's in American literary magazines. How Hornaday and Conrad met is apparently unrecorded but their paths may have first crossed in Malaysia during the 1880s. The inscription is dated two days before Conrad's wedding in London. The publication of the Outcast had been delayed owing to a fire which destroyed the printer's stereo-plates, and the book came out on 4 March 1896. Conrad sent out the first copies on 10 March. Contemporary presentation copies of Conrad's early novels are rare. N° de réf. du libraire 63484

Description du livre : Heinemann, 1898. First edition. Original black cloth lettered in gilt. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front end paper, "To Miss Watson from her very faithful friend and servant the Author. 24th Dec 1897" A very good copy but somewhat rubbed to spine ends, joints and corners. Front hinge cracking but firm and some looseness between sections. Foxing to prelims but generally fresh interally. Helen May Watson (1875–1967) married Conrad's close friend Edward Lancelot Sanderson (the dedicatee of An Outcast of the Islands) in 1898. In an affectionate letter to Sanderson on 26 December 1897 sending him "all the wishes suitable to the season and which friendship may dictate" Conrad ends by referring to this copy: "My affectionate regards and duty to Miss Watson. I've sent off a copy of the 'N.' for her. You must wait for yours a little." (Collected Letters, I, p. 435). The Nigger of the Narcissus is considered to be Conrad's first great novel and marks the start of purple patch in his literary output upon which much of his reputation rests, taking in Lord Jim, Youth, Typhoon, Nostromo and The Secret Agent. Signed and inscribed copies of these early novels are exceptionally rare, and we can locate only two copies being offered at auction in the last forty years. N° de réf. du libraire 32386

Description du livre : 1899. [written about LORD JIM] Addressed to "Dear Mrs. Bontine" [Anne Elizabeth Bontine, the mother of Conrad's good friend R(obert). B(ontine). Cunnighame Graham]. On his stationery of Pent Farm, Stanford, near Hythe [Kent]. 4 pages (both sides of one folded leaf). Dated 25 Nov. [18]99. The recipient of this letter was the mother of R. B. Cunninghame Graham -- one of Conrad's closest friends, and one of the most important people in his life. The two men met in 1897 (when Graham lauded "An Outpost of Progress"). Graham and his family were of the Scottish aristocracy but with Spanish blood; Graham approved of anarchy as a political alternative (see: THE SECRET AGENT), and traveled widely in places such as Africa (hence his interest in "Outpost") and in South America (which would provide Conrad with much information about that continent for such writings as NOSTROMO). Conrad was also a correspondent with his mother, especially when Graham was traveling -- as here.~Beginning in late-1898, "Conrad began to split into pieces, and one result was the emergence of Charley Marlow, a middle-aged seaman. His next three works all used Marlow in varying degrees of dependency: 'Youth,' 'Heart of Darkness' and LORD JIM" [Karl]. A year later, at the time of this letter, he had completed the first two but was still agonizing over what he had planned to be merely a third short story, "Lord Jim."~The text of Conrad's letter reads:~A thousand apologies for my remissness in answering your kind and most welcome letter. I've just heard from dear Robert. He wrote from Granada. It makes me really happy to know that in the middle of his occupations he finds time to think of me. If envy is the sincerest form of admiration then I do envy him. There is no man to envy more.~He told me of his intention to go south again, so I do not answer his letter now. I expect to have the happiness (ceci n'est pas une phrase) of seeing him on his return. His youngest (I should think) friend does not consider himself fully dressed for the day unless he has on his neck the pretty-pretty given him by Kunam Gram. Do you recognize the name? [it appears to be a perhaps-tribal corruption of "Cunninghame Graham"]~You have the gift of kind words, of words that reach one in the depth of mental solitude, of discouragement, of mistrust. It looms like the blackest ingratitude that I should have delayed so long my thanks for your praise of Lord Jim which is my last (and lasting) anxiety. I've not as yet finished that story. The volume including that one, the Heart of D'ss and Youth shall come out in March if the fates are propitious. It shall come out and but for you -- Robert -- a friend here and there I would feel it shall disappear about that date. Yet I am a fortunate man for I have just the appreciations I care for.~My wife, with thanks for your message for her, asks me to convey the expression of her great regard. I can't tell you how grateful I am for every letter you deign to write. Pray believe me always your most faithful and obedient servant, [signed] Joseph Conrad~Well, the fates were NOT propitious -- or maybe, in retrospect, they were. The projected volume never did come out the following March -- for, prolonging the author's "lasting anxiety," "Lord Jim" the story gradually expanded into LORD JIM the 451-page novel, published in October 1900 -- generally regarded today as Conrad's greatest work. The other two tales could not yet appear in book form because, in the absence of "Lord Jim," a third tale was needed to "fill out" a volume. It would not be until 1902 that Conrad could write "The End of the Tether"; that third story would permit the publication of YOUTH And Two Other Stories in November 1902 -- more than two years after LORD JIM.~This letter, first and foremost, demonstrates in the author's own hand how it was his intention that the three "Marlow" stories should form a single published book -- which never happened. Further, the letter gives a hint of the anguish he. N° de réf. du libraire 12984

Description du livre : 1912. [to Reggie & Maisie Gibbon] London: Eveleigh Nash, 1912. 2 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth. First Edition of this autobiographical work, which initially appeared serially in Ford Madox Ford's newly-founded "English Review."~What is remarkable about Conrad's reminiscences is how clearly he employed fictional techniques worked out with Ford, wherein the narrative intensity increases as the story develops. To achieve that, Conrad used a constantly interrupted narrative as a way of unsettling conventional sequences and, thereby, established anticipation of the next episode. Conrad needed a method that permitted intimacy, up to a certain point, and then withdrawal, when he had revealed enough. so his reminiscences would be matters of attack and retreat. [Karl]~SOME REMINISCENCES is generally believed to have slightly preceded the American edition -- which, as with subsequent English editions, was titled A PERSONAL RECORD. Wise claimed that only 1,000 copies were printed (apparently including some bound by Bell as the colonial issue), but Nash records have not survived to substantiate this.~This copy is in fine, bright condition (discreet bookplate of the remarkable Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger). Cagle A15b.1. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.~This is an inscribed presentation copy from Conrad, with the following in his hand on the front free endpaper: "To | Maisie and Reggie | from their affectionate | J.C. | 1912". Perceval "Reggie" Gibbon (1879-1926) was, like Conrad, a former seaman who had become a writer; both used J.B. Pinker as an agent, which may be how they first met. When Conrad suffered his nervous breakdown in early 1910 (as he was completing UNDER WESTERN EYES), it was Gibbon who came to the rescue: Jessie Conrad later wrote of those months, "If it had not been for Perceval Gibbon who came often and always, it seemed, in the nick of time, I feel sure I would not have held out" [quoted in Karl p. 680]. Gibbon dedicated his Margaret Harding to the Conrads in 1911, and a few years later Conrad would reciprocate by dedicating VICTORY to Gibbon and his wife Maisie. Conrad and "Reggie" had a rather intense flurry of correspondence during the 'Teens, but most of it was lost during the Great War so not a lot is known about their friendship. At one point the two men considered collaborating on a play based on both men's early seafaring experiences in Africa (as in Conrad's "Heart of Darkness"). Toward the end of the war, Gibbon was a war correspondent with the Italian Army for The New York Times, and after the war he became a major in the British Royal Marines. As veteran Conrad collectors know, the most intimate inscriptions Conrad wrote were those he signed merely "J.C.". N° de réf. du libraire 12673

First Edition, first issue (so stated), of Conrad's third autobiographical (though fictionalized) work -- "a Far-Eastern story of a haunted ship. No reader of THE SHADOW-LINE will ever forget the first mate and the silent crew of the schooner which had such mysterious difficulty in passing latitude 8 degrees 20 minutes" [from the ads]. This copy is printed on laid paper, as usual (some copies, perhaps those intended for the colonies, are on wove paper). This is a remarkably fine, bright copy. Cagle A21a.1. Housed in a (dried) morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.~This copy is inscribed and signed by Conrad, "Arthur Symons | from | Joseph Conrad | March 1917 [the month of publication]". Arthur Symons (1865-1945) was an author, a poet and a critic who was extremely influential in the "symbolist school" of the 1890s. As editor of The Savoy, in 1896 he published Conrad's first short story ("The Idiots"); according to Conrad's wife, Symons was the only poet Conrad read for pleasure (such that he used a Symons verse as the epigraph for TWIXT LAND & SEA in 1912). Symons and Conrad wound up as neighbors in Kent, and also had in common severe bouts with "nerves" during the years 1909-1912. N° de réf. du libraire 12657

Housed in a custom clamshell case.~This copy is inscribed and signed by Conrad, "Clement Shorter | with great regard | from Joseph Conrad | March 1917 [the month of publication]". Conrad had first met the bibliophile and editor Clement Shorter (1859-1926) in 1898, when Conrad was working on his manuscript of THE RESCUER (ultimately published without the final "R" in 1920). The two resumed contact in 1916, when Conrad (always in need of cash) and Shorter devised a scheme to publish six of Conrad's miscellaneous writings in very-limited editions (beginning with ONE DAY MORE in February 1917, a month before this presentation). These "manufactured rarities" [Cagle] were quite a success, and Conrad collaborated with Thomas J. Wise on twenty more of them during the years 1919-1920. N° de réf. du libraire 12670

Description du livre : 1917. Signed. CONRAD, Joseph.Autograph letter signed.Capel House, Orlestone [Kent], November 6, 1917.Fine two-page autograph letter signed by Joseph Conrad during World War I, mentioning two of his books, Lord Jim and Typhoon, as well as his two sons, one of which (his oldest, Borys) he refers to as "a young man at the front."Conrad addresses an unnamed correspondent: "The books are going by tonight's post, a copy of Lord Jim containing a most repulsive photograph of the author—but one can't stop that sort of thing—the other is an Am. copy of the blue-leather edition of Typhoon. You'll find inside the latest photograph of myself—which tells its own tale, tho' I don't think it can convey any information to the enemy. Perhap, if pasted on the fly-leaf, it may help to fetch a few pence more for the copy of Typhoon. But if you don't think so may I ask you to post it back to me as there are only 3 more copies in existence, of which one reposes in the pocket-book of a young man at the front and the other two are in this house belonging to my wife and the small boy. I've signed both books as requested. Yours very faithfully, J. Conrad." Conrad's son Borys was a soldier at this time—the "young man at the front" he refers to—and "the small boy" would have been his second son, John.One fold line, a bit of dust soiling, thin strip of paper affixed to right margin on verso, probably the remnants of a hinge where the letter was tipped into a book or album. Minor smudges to closing and signature. Very good condition. N° de réf. du libraire 100990

Description du livre : Methuen, 1920. Tenth edition. Original red cloth lettered in gilt to the spine. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front endpaper, "Catherine Willard from her friend Joseph Conrad 1st Jan 1921". A very good copy indeed with minor wear to the spine ends and some cracking to the front hinge. Catherine Willard (1898-1954) was a noted screen actress and leading lady. She met Conrad in about 1920 through her mother, Grace, who at the time was an interior designer and helping the Conrads furnish their new home, Oswalds, in Bishopsbourne, Kent. She was establishing herself as an actress and was about the same age as the Conrad's son, Borys. The latter suspected his parents of attempting to line her up as a future daughter in law. Conrad was writing his dramatic adaptation of The Secret Agent at the time and had Willard in mind for the heroine. He sent the finished manuscript of the play to her shortly before his death in 1924, and it is probable that he gave her this copy to familiarise herself with the novel, in the hope she would take the part, whilst he finished the play. The Secret Agent has long been regarded as one of Conrad's finest and most enduring novels and was a key influence on both Graham Greene and Eric Ambler. It is notably rare in a presentation state, even as a reprint. "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). N° de réf. du libraire 32862

Description du livre : 1915. [inscribed to Llewelyn Davies] Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1915. Original dark blue cloth. First American Edition of this collection of six short stories. The English edition had been published in 1908, and in the same year one of the stories, "The Duel," was published alone by McClure of New York (as "The Point of Honor"). A few months later McClure went under and was bought out by Doubleday -- but since Doubleday could not acquire the copyright to most of the other five tales (because they had already been published in England), he was in no hurry to publish this volume -- until the success of CHANCE in 1913 prompted him to do so (hence the seven-year delay of the American A SET OF SIX). All of this undoubtedly prompted a small printing, making this one of the scarcer American editions of Conrad. In his "author's note" Conrad expresses his satisfaction at having this tale restored "to its proper home and surroundings," rather than cutting down the American edition to "A Set of Five." (The volume is "rounded out" with the addition of "The Romantic Story of Joseph Conrad," much of it gleaned from Richard Curle's biography of the year before.)~This is a copy from the first printing (without a double-rule border around the title page); the second printing was for the limp leather "Deep Sea" format, and the third printing does have the double-rule border. It is in very good condition -- with no appreciable flaws other than dull spine lettering. Cagle A13d.~Provenance: in addition to the discreet bookplate of Conrad super-collector Stanley J. Seeger, the front endpaper is inscribed by Conrad, "Mr & Mrs | H. [A.?] Llewelyn Davies | with friendly regards | from J. Conrad | 1915." (It is difficult to tell Conrad's capital "H" from his capital "A" -- as he varied them considerably; we have examined numerous capital "A"s and "H"s in his hand, and frankly this character looks like neither.) Conrad was a good friend of J. M. Barrie, and Barrie was in turn very close to the Llewelyn Davies family -- so Conrad most likely inscribed this volume as a favor to Barrie. Arthur and Sylvia Llewelyn Davies (she was the daughter of the French-born author and cartoonist George duMaurier) had five boys -- with whom Barrie was "obsessed" (per Barrie's biographer). The five boys were George, John, Peter, Michael and Nicholas -- whom Barrie turned into George (the father) Darling, John Darling, Peter Pan, and Michael Nicholas Darling. If the capital letter in the inscription is an "H", we don't know exactly who in the Llewelyn Davies family this might have been; if it is an "A", the book was presented to the parents of the five boys.

Description du livre : 1917. [inscribed to John Millais] A Confession. London & Toronto: J. M. Dent & Sons, (1917). 18 pp undated ads. Original light grey-green cloth decorated in brown. First Edition, first issue (so stated), of Conrad's third autobiographical (though fictionalized) work -- "a Far-Eastern story of a haunted ship. No reader of THE SHADOW-LINE will ever forget the first mate and the silent crew of the schooner which had such mysterious difficulty in passing latitude 8 degrees 20 minutes" [from the ads]. This copy is printed on laid paper, as usual (some copies, perhaps those intended for the colonies, are on wove paper). This is a fine copy (spine lettering slightly dull, as usual for this wartime book). Cagle A21a.1. With the bookplate of the amazing Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger. Housed in a custom clamshell case.~This copy is inscribed and signed by Conrad, "John Millais | from his friend | J. Conrad | March 1917 [the month of publication]". Sir John Everett Millais (1888-1920), the grandson of the famous Pre-Raphaelite painter by the same name, was a neighbor of the Conrads in Kent, who during the years 1916-1920 frequently came over to play chess with Conrad. A lieutenant in the Royal Navy, he had seen action on board the HMS Stephen Furness, but developed tuberculosis and was forced to retire in 1916, the year before this presentation; he succumbed to the disease in 1920, at the age of 32. His mother and Conrad's wife were also best of friends. N° de réf. du libraire 12671
