THE ROVER [1/377 signed copies].

[1/377 copies signed] Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1923. Original white parchment over blue boards, with both the tissue dust jacket and the blue-grey paper printed dust jacket.

First Edition, limited to 377 copies numbered and signed by Conrad -- this being copy #70 (there was no English limited edition). The American trade edition was published a day later, and the English trade edition was published three days later.

The condition of this book is fine (a couple of early catalogue descriptions are tipped onto the front free endpaper), essentially without soil or wear. This copy has both the tissue and the printed paper dust jackets, and both are in near-fine condition (quite minor edge-wear, one tiny hole in the front hinge); this copy does not have the very uncommon publisher's box, in which this edition was issued. The leaves are still unopened. Smith pp 89-90; Keating 178. Item #14514
