Item #15146 CHANCE. A Tale in Two Parts. (Zane Grey's copy). Joseph Conrad.

CHANCE. A Tale in Two Parts. (Zane Grey's copy)

Garden City NY: Doubleday, Page & Company, 1914. Original navy blue cloth decorated in gilt.

First American Edition, fifth and last 1914 impression (NOT so identified -- but per Supino and per Cagle, the fifth has no border around the title page, and its half-title does bear the ship device). This was the work that revived Conrad's fortunes, hitting it big after almost a decade of underwhelming reception by the public.

The volume's condition is just about fine (a trace of rubbing at the corner tips). See Supino A17.14.0 note, and Cagle 17b(2). Provenance: the front free endpaper and half-title bear the personal blind-stamp of American author Zane Grey -- indicating a volume that came from his estate. Item #15146

Price: $250.00
