JOSEPH CONRAD'S DIARY of His Journey up the Valley of the Congo in 1890.

With an Introduction and Notes by Richard Curle. London: One Hundred Copies, Privately Printed [by Strangeways], January 1926. Original green cloth with printed spine label.

First Edition, limited to 100 copies. This was the diary that Conrad kept while on his 1890 journey up the Congo River -- a trip that later became the foundation of his best-known short story, "Heart of Darkness." His friend and biographer Richard Curle had this volume published two years after Conrad's death.

This is a near-fine copy, with essentially no wear but with the cloth sunned, as usual; there was no dust jacket, unless perhaps an unprinted glassine one. Not in Keating. Item #14439

Price: $250.00
