New York and London: Harper & Brothers, 1906. Original blue cloth pictorially decorated in yellow, grey and brown.
First (American) Edition, published on the same day as the London one. This was Conrad's first volume of autobiographical non-fiction.~This copy is in Cagle's binding "a," with the smaller (17x11mm) anchor-and-rope device on the front cover -- probably the earlier binding state, and certainly the one more-frequently encountered. This is a fine clean copy, with just the slightest of rubbing at the tips. The front endpaper bears the penciled signature of Conrad bibliographer Walter Smith. Cagle A11b. Item #13475
