About this Item

First UK edition. Publisher’s windmill device on title page, without "Reserved for the Colonies only" on verso of title page, and with publisher's monogram on rear cover. One of only 1500 copies. The first publication in book form of all the stories except the title novella "Typhoon," which was previously published in the U.S. by Putnam in 1902. This UK edition adds three stories not in the U.S. edition ("Amy Foster," "Falk," and "To-Morrow") and incorporates Conrad's final revisions to "Typhoon," which were not in the U.S. edition. There is no comparable U.S. edition. Cagle's binding "B" (there are only 2 or 3 known copies of binding "A," which is a presumed trial binding) with only the top edge trimmed and with 110 mm between "Conrad" and "Heinemann" on spine [Cagle A8b(1)]. Original, slate-gray cloth with title, author, publisher, and life-preserver stamped in gilt; 32 pages of ads at end (as in some copies, but not all). Light foxing on endpapers only, minor wear on corners and spine ends, bubbling to cloth at spine and along rear cover edges, otherwise very good with gilt quite bright. Bookseller Inventory # 53768
