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: 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: 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

Description du livre: [East Hampton, NY], 2012. Artist's book, unique, hand-painted and collaged with text cut from printed edition of Conrad's book and collaged line by line on Richard de Bas paper, signed by the artist, Barry McCallion, on the verso of the titlepage, and dated "August / 2012" on the last page. Page size: 6-3/8 x 5 inches; 64pp. (larger trim size and more pages than the companion piece by the artist, KURTZ). Bound: loose as issued, housed in green paper wrappers with title on front cover collage which also features pen and ink painting in blue, black and terracotta, housed in green cloth over boards clamshell box, title HEART OF DARKNESS / MARLOW printed in white on black ground inset on paper label on front cover. The text is taken from Joseph Conrad's HEART OF DARKNESS, specifically those passages describing Marlow and particularly his observations on the setting of Conrad's story. The physical location, while described by Conrad, is more imagined by Marlow. The artist has interpreted the text in his own way. For example, "He has to live in the midst of the incomprehensible, which is also detetestable. And it has a fascination, too, that goes to work upon him. The fascination of the abomination." is set opposite a collaged image on painted black ground, the vegetation (or are they flames?) preventing any light from coming through. The following page is another painted collage on terracotta ground, maybe the world aflame, consuming those who are there. The bleakness of Conrad's prose is set against paintings and collages that are dark and complicated landscapes that, in their abstractions confound and challenge the reader / viewer. This is a beautiful book, challenging and rewarding with images and text that command attention. See an Image. N° de réf. du libraire 10645

Description du livre: [East Hampton, NY], 2012. Artist's book, unique, hand-lettered, hand-painted and collaged on Japon Nacre paper, signed by the artist, Barry McCallion, on the titlepage, and dated "August / 2012" on the last page. Page size: 5-5/8 x 3-3/4 inches; 35pp. Bound: loose as issued, housed in green paper over boards wrappers with title on front cover collage which also features pen and ink painting of black heart on terracotta ground, housed in green cloth over boards clamshell box, title HEART OF DARKNESS / KURTZ printed in white on black ground inset on paper label on front cover. The text is taken from Joseph Conrad's HEART OF DARKNESS, specifically those passages describing Kurtz. The images spread across each page, making a double-page spread with the text lettered below it in terracotta colored ink. The images are all landscapes: brown and black ink with collaged colored paper (the green textured paper) in green, terracotta, and blue. Often the backdrop of the landscape is a series of parallel lines suggesting an impenetrable fence. The landscapes are not benign; rather they maze-like and negotiating through them has an air of difficulty and almost futility. Mr. McCallion's interpretation of this important character in one of western literature's important novels leads the reader / viewer to the conclusion that Conrad's setting is as much a character in novel as the actual named figures.
