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. 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 : Doubleday, Page & Co, Garden City and New York, 1920. Hardcover. In 22 Unusually Flamboyant Lilac Morocco VolumesBy the Leading American Binder of the Day. 222 x 152 mm (8 3/4 x 6"). 22 volumes. "Sun-dial Edition." ONE OF 735 COPIES, SIGNED BY CONRAD. FINE--AND ESPECIALLY FLAMBOYANT--LILAC MOROCCO, ELABORATELY GILT, BY STIKEMAN, covers panelled with single and double gilt fillets and intricate scrolling foliate cornerpieces, raised bands, spine attractively gilt in ruled compartments with marine ornaments (seashell or anchor) as centerpiece and with scrolling cornerpieces, CRIMSON MOROCCO DOUBLURES, the front doublures with a central panel of blue morocco, wide turn-ins with alternating floral tools, doublures decorated with wavy gilt lines and (at corners) floral bouquets, blue central panels with a large gilt sailing vessel at middle, watered silk endleaves, morocco hinges, all edges gilt. Frontispiece portrait. WITH AN AUTOGRAPH POSTCARD SIGNED BY CONRAD tipped in at front (see below). Also with the signature of Richard Curle (author of "Joseph Conrad, a Study" and many other critical works), written next to his printed name as the dedicatee of Volume 16. Spines uniformly faded to an even chestnut brown, a hint of rubbing to a handful of joints and corners (only), one opening in one volume with marginal spots, but QUITE A HANDSOME SET IN FINE CONDITION, the text virtually pristine, the covers bright, and the wear to the leather entirely minor. Polish-born Joseph Conrad (1857-1924) led a roving life as a sailor aboard French and British ships trading in exotic ports of Asia, South America, and Africa before he began his career as a novelist with "Almayer's Folly" in 1895. He wrote in English, in a style sometimes characterized as "impressionistic," with a phenomenal command of the language, despite not having learned it until he was an adult. Conrad's stories of the sea fascinate the reader not only for their remote settings and adventurous plots, but also for their psychological veracity and investigaton of moral issues, typified by the structurally innovative novel "Lord Jim" and the novellas "The Nigger of the Narcissus" and "Heart of Darkness," the latter describing a journey up the Congo. Although many of his works are set on the seas or on faraway islands, "Nostromo" is the account of political intrigue in a small South American state, and "Under Western Eyes" is a suspenseful story of a secret agent among Russian revolutionaries. This set was bound by one of America's best. According to the catalogue of the Frederick Maser Collection, during the period from the retirement of William Matthews to the establishment of the Club Bindery, there was no better binder in America than Henry Stikeman, who exhibited "extraordinary skill . . . in design, inlaying, and tooling." The present volumes have an outward appearance not unlike other bindings by Stikeman, but the doublures, with their bold color combination and animated decoration, depart from his more traditional designs. Dated 4 June, the tipped-in postcard of some 140 words is from Conrad to his agent, James Brand Pinker. The message alludes to an apparent automobile breakdown, which prompts Conrad to apologize to Pinker for having to experience "the boredom and horrors of hanging about the roads miles from anywhere." Also mentioned in the postcard is the arrival of Hugh Walpole, who had appeared at 10 the previous evening and seems still to be in bed. Between the set's considerable shelf attractiveness, the limited and signed nature of the edition, and the additional autograph material, this is an item of very special appeal. "Sun-dial Edition."

Description du livre : London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1898, 1898. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, Boots library logo to upper board in blind. Housed in a green cloth slipcase and chemise. Ownership signature on front pastedown removed. Cloth a little rubbed with some bumps and marks, Boots logo significantly abraded, hinges cracked, free endpapers tanned, gutter cracked in a few places, contents faintly toned, chip and repaired closed tear to rear free endpaper, library stamp and remnants of library ticket to rear pastedown. A very good copy. First English edition, first impression, first domestic issue. Presentation copy inscribed by the author to his literary agent on the front free endpaper, "For J. B. Pinker, Joseph Conrad". J. B. Pinker (1863–1922) was one of the first of the professional literary agents who established themselves in the wake of the technological and copyright changes that were compartmentalising the marketplace. "Establishing himself in an office in Arundel Street, London, in early 1896, Pinker set out to exploit the potential of this newly emerging profession, with H. G. Wells as one of his first clients. Within two years his skill at negotiating rights and contracts for authors in both the American and British markets had established him as one of the leading literary agents of his time, alongside Alexander Pollock Watt and the American-born Curtis Brown" (ODNB). Pinker was generous to Conrad, advancing large sums in the belief that his client's star was rising, and Conrad was not fully able to repay him until 1919, when the motion picture rights to four of his stories were purchased. Because the partnership had not yet been established when Tales of Unrest was published in 1898, it is likely that Conrad purchased this copy later to present to Pinker, and given the strained nature of their relationship, it is not surprising that an ex-library copy was chosen. Inscribed copies of Conrad's books published before 1900 are exceptionally rare, and no other signed or inscribed copies of Tales of Unrest have appeared at auction since 1990. A wonderful association. From the library of Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger, with his bookplate. N° de réf. du libraire 84968

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

Description du livre : 1917. [inscribed to Arthur Symons] 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 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

Description du livre : 1917. [inscribed to Clement Shorter] 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 bookplates of Clement K. Shorter, of Walter and Dorothy Donnelly, and of the amazing Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger. 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 : 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

Description du livre : 24 April 1916, Capel House, Orlestone, Nr. Ashford, 1916. État : Fine. First Edition. In the letter Conrad thanks Sir Sidney Colvin (1845-1927) for going to see a bust that was made of him and implies that Colvin wasn't overly impressed with the result. In the letter Conrad mentions that the artist also did busts of Page and Zangwill. Research has found that the American sculptor Jo Davidson (1883-1952) completed busts of both Conrad and Israel Zangwill (1864-1926). According to his memoir, "Between Sittings" (1951), Conrad sat for Davidson in 1915. Davidson was a contemporary of Edward Steichen, Arthur Carles, John Marin, Marsden Hartley, and Laurence Fellows and part of the wave of the Modern School in New York in the early 20th century. Sir Sidney Colvin, literary & art critic, was a friend of both Conrad and Robert Louis Stevenson. Letter is in its original folder, Lot 126, from an Anderson Galleries auction of the collection of E. V. Lucas and comes with the transcription of the letter prepared for the sale. Lucas wrote a biography of Lord and Lady Colvin in 1928, "The Colvins and Their Friends" and may have used these letters in the course of his work. Full transcription of the letter available upon request. 10" x 8" handwritten in fountain pen on both sides, signed "J. Conrad." Printed stationery from Conrad's home, Capel House in Orlestone, Nr. Ashford. Four creases where it was folded in half, twice, to fit in a small envelope. No tears or chips, small stain on front page that may have happened as Conrad was writing. Very clean overall.

Description du livre : London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1913, 1913. Octavo. Original green cloth, titles and decoration to spine gilt. With the front panel from the rare dust jacket loosely inserted. Extremities lightly rubbed, a good, tight copy with bright gilt on spine. Spurious first edition, actually the fourth edition with stub-mounted cancel title page, signed and dated "1913" by the author on the front free endpaper. This book has a highly complicated publishing history due to a strike at the binders which delayed publication from autumn 1913 until spring 1914. The publishers chose to cancel the 1913 title pages with replacements dated 1914. Only a very small number of copies (51 according to Methuen's files) with the earlier title pages survived. The matter would have remained fairly straightforward were it not for Conradians avid for copies dated 1913. To service this demand Methuen recalled the fourth impression and inserted new 1913 title pages into them. Copies of this issue are distinguishable by the cancel titles being stub mounted and by the spacing of the line of type on the title page. N° de réf. du libraire 67881
