THE ROVER. Joseph Conrad.
THE ROVER.

THE ROVER.

London: T. Fisher Unwin, (1923). Original navy blue cloth with gilt-decorated spine.

First English Edition, third impression (published in the same year as the first -- per the title verso). This is a smaller volume, in flexible boards; because it is from the same plates as the larger-format first impression, the margins in this book are unusually narrow. Near-fine condition (a little light speckling of the cloth).~This copy is inscribed and signed by Conrad in the following year (the year of his death): "Claud Williamson | from | J. Conrad | 1924." Provenance: from the Conrad collection of Stanley J. Seeger (bearing his discreet bookplate) -- from lot 375 in Sotheby's sale. Item #13091

Price: $950.00
