Item Description: London: Methuen & Co. Ltd., 1911, 1911. Octavo. Original red linen-grain cloth, spine lettered and decorated in gilt. Custom red morocco-backed slipcase and chemise, spine lettered in gilt. Spine lightly faded, untrimmed edges of text-block a little spotted, an excellent copy. First edition, presentation copy to John Galsworthy and his wife, Ada, inscribed on the front free endpaper, "To Jack and Ada with love from J. C. 1911". Conrad first met Galsworthy in 1893 on the sailing-ship Torrens. Galsworthy, bound for Cape Town, boarded the ship at Adelaide and encountered its first mate, the future novelist, angry and black with coal dust; the two writers became lifelong friends. Under Western Eyes is the last book in the astonishing sequence of novels that constituted Conrad's major phase, beginning with The Nigger of the "Narcissus" (1897), taking in Lord Jim, Youth, Typhoon, Nostromo, The Secret Agent, and "The Secret Sharer". "With Under Western Eyes he even dared to challenge (and arguably surpassed) Dostoyevsky's Crime and Punishment" (ODNB). Bookseller Inventory # 48397

Item Description: Heinemann, 1898. First edition. Original black cloth lettered in gilt. Author's presentation copy, inscribed on the front end paper, "To Miss Watson from her very faithful friend and servant the Author. 24th Dec 1897" A very good copy but somewhat rubbed to spine ends, joints and corners. Front hinge cracking but firm and some looseness between sections. Foxing to prelims but generally fresh interally. Helen May Watson (1875–1967) married Conrad's close friend Edward Lancelot Sanderson (the dedicatee of An Outcast of the Islands) in 1898. In an affectionate letter to Sanderson on 26 December 1897 sending him "all the wishes suitable to the season and which friendship may dictate" Conrad ends by referring to this copy: "My affectionate regards and duty to Miss Watson. I've sent off a copy of the 'N.' for her. You must wait for yours a little." (Collected Letters, I, p. 435). The Nigger of the Narcissus is considered to be Conrad's first great novel and marks the start of purple patch in his literary output upon which much of his reputation rests, taking in Lord Jim, Youth, Typhoon, Nostromo and The Secret Agent. Signed and inscribed copies of these early novels are exceptionally rare, and we can locate only two copies being offered at auction in the last forty years. Bookseller Inventory # 32386

Item Description: London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1896, 1896. 2 works, octavo. Original green cloth, titles to spine and top edge gilt, other edges untrimmed. Housed in green quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Binding a little rubbed and marked, endpapers tanned. A very good copy. First edition, first impression. Inscribed by the author on the front free endpaper, "To Mr. W. T. Hornaday with the Author's most friendly regards. 22 March, 1896". Hornaday (1854–1937) was an American zoologist and conservationist who is credited with the preservation of a number of species including the North American bison. He helped found the Smithsonian National Zoo and in 1896 was made the director of the New York Zoological Park. Hornaday was the author of ten books, and one of his earliest published works was Free Rum on the Congo and What It Is Doing There (1887), a copy of which accompanies the present item. His work subsequently appeared alongside Conrad's in American literary magazines. How Hornaday and Conrad met is apparently unrecorded but their paths may have first crossed in Malaysia during the 1880s. The inscription is dated two days before Conrad's wedding in London. The publication of the Outcast had been delayed owing to a fire which destroyed the printer's stereo-plates, and the book came out on 4 March 1896. Conrad sent out the first copies on 10 March. Contemporary presentation copies of Conrad's early novels are rare. Bookseller Inventory # 63484

Item Description: [San Francisco]: A. Roman & Brother. 1856., 1856. Single sheet (18 2/8 x 24 inches, full margins, showing the plate-mark). A FINE lithographed view of Yreka with original hand-colour in full and heightened with gum arabic. This iconic view of the gold-mining town of Yreka in California is from "Kuchel & Dresel's California Views" which included "all the important cities and mining towns, with a few of Oregon and Washington, issued during 1855, 1856, 1857, and 1858. They were sometimes published by a local merchant, often the bookseller [as here]. Many of them were framed by a border of views of important buildings, ranches, and mines in and about the town portrayed." (Peters page 142). Kuchel was born in Zweibrucken in 1820, and when he arrived in America work initially for P.S. Duval in Philadelphia. He began collaborating with Dresel in 1853. Kuchel and Dresel capture a birds-eye view of this bustling Gold Rush town just a few years after the first discovery of gold and its founding. As such it is a remarkable and important historical record of the times. Initially named "Thompson's Dry Diggings" "Gold was discovered here in March 1851 by Abraham Thompson, member of a party which was enroute from Oregon to Scott Bar. Following a heavy rainstorm, particles of gold in the roots of grass pulled up by pack animals caused Thompson to wash three pans of gravel. The results convinced the party that the area was rich enough to work. In the party were Dr. F. G. Hearn, Judge Silas J. Day and a Mr. Bell, Thompson's partner. All staked claims on these flats thirty feet square, and it was named "Thompson's Dry Diggings". Within six weeks 2,000 prospectors rushed here to mine, but the need of water caused the settlement to move to the creek. And it became known as Shasta Butte City. This name being confused with Shasta, in Shasta County. Was changed to "I-E-K-A," The Indian word for Mt. Shasta. "Now Yreka" in 1852" (Plaque at site of Thompson's discovery of gold). Peters, "California on Stone", pages 143 and 146; see Streeter 2787. Catalogued by Kate Hunter. Bookseller Inventory # 72edv50

Item Description: [San Francisco: ?Fagg & Feast, 1856]., 1856. Single sheet (17 4/8 x 25 inches, full margins, showing the plate-mark). A FINE lithographed view of Weaverville (a bit browned). This fine view of Weaverville in California is from "Kuchel & Dresel's California Views" which included "all the important cities and mining towns, with a few of Oregon and Washington, issued during 1855, 1856, 1857, and 1858. They were sometimes published by a local merchant, often the bookseller [as here]. Many of them were framed by a border of views of important buildings, ranches, and mines in and about the town portrayed." (Peters page 142). Kuchel was born in Zweibrucken in 1820, and when he arrived in America work initially for P.S. Duval in Philadelphia. He began collaborating with Dresel in 1853. Kuchel and Dresel capture this early large-scale bird's-eye view of the Gold Rush town of Weaverville, and it is the earliest recorded in Reps, "Views and Viewmakers of Urban America" (443). Weaverville was only founded in 1850 during the Gold Rush, and attracted a large proportion of Chinese miners. "Weaverville owes its origin to the rush into northwestern California, which the discoveries of Pearson B. Reading started. By the summer of 1851 it was a thriving mining center, inhabited largely by Missourians, and had a reputation of being the roughest camp in California. And for years afterwards this reputation held. William H. Brewer was in Weaverville in September, 1862. He.comments on the high cost of freights, and says further: 'Sluices run through the town. There are multitudes of Chinese. There are twenty-eight saloons and liquor holes in the place and fighting and gambling are favorite pastimes.' Today Weaverville, Trinity's county seat since its organization, is a quiet and prosperous town with extensive interests in gold mining" Watson "California in the Fifties" (40).

Item Description: 1899. [written about LORD JIM] Addressed to "Dear Mrs. Bontine" [Anne Elizabeth Bontine, the mother of Conrad's good friend R(obert). B(ontine). Cunnighame Graham]. On his stationery of Pent Farm, Stanford, near Hythe [Kent]. 4 pages (both sides of one folded leaf). Dated 25 Nov. [18]99. The recipient of this letter was the mother of R. B. Cunninghame Graham -- one of Conrad's closest friends, and one of the most important people in his life. The two men met in 1897 (when Graham lauded "An Outpost of Progress"). Graham and his family were of the Scottish aristocracy but with Spanish blood; Graham approved of anarchy as a political alternative (see: THE SECRET AGENT), and traveled widely in places such as Africa (hence his interest in "Outpost") and in South America (which would provide Conrad with much information about that continent for such writings as NOSTROMO). Conrad was also a correspondent with his mother, especially when Graham was traveling -- as here.~Beginning in late-1898, "Conrad began to split into pieces, and one result was the emergence of Charley Marlow, a middle-aged seaman. His next three works all used Marlow in varying degrees of dependency: 'Youth,' 'Heart of Darkness' and LORD JIM" [Karl]. A year later, at the time of this letter, he had completed the first two but was still agonizing over what he had planned to be merely a third short story, "Lord Jim."~The text of Conrad's letter reads:~A thousand apologies for my remissness in answering your kind and most welcome letter. I've just heard from dear Robert. He wrote from Granada. It makes me really happy to know that in the middle of his occupations he finds time to think of me. If envy is the sincerest form of admiration then I do envy him. There is no man to envy more.~He told me of his intention to go south again, so I do not answer his letter now. I expect to have the happiness (ceci n'est pas une phrase) of seeing him on his return. His youngest (I should think) friend does not consider himself fully dressed for the day unless he has on his neck the pretty-pretty given him by Kunam Gram. Do you recognize the name? [it appears to be a perhaps-tribal corruption of "Cunninghame Graham"]~You have the gift of kind words, of words that reach one in the depth of mental solitude, of discouragement, of mistrust. It looms like the blackest ingratitude that I should have delayed so long my thanks for your praise of Lord Jim which is my last (and lasting) anxiety. I've not as yet finished that story. The volume including that one, the Heart of D'ss and Youth shall come out in March if the fates are propitious. It shall come out and but for you -- Robert -- a friend here and there I would feel it shall disappear about that date. Yet I am a fortunate man for I have just the appreciations I care for.~My wife, with thanks for your message for her, asks me to convey the expression of her great regard. I can't tell you how grateful I am for every letter you deign to write. Pray believe me always your most faithful and obedient servant, [signed] Joseph Conrad~Well, the fates were NOT propitious -- or maybe, in retrospect, they were. The projected volume never did come out the following March -- for, prolonging the author's "lasting anxiety," "Lord Jim" the story gradually expanded into LORD JIM the 451-page novel, published in October 1900 -- generally regarded today as Conrad's greatest work. The other two tales could not yet appear in book form because, in the absence of "Lord Jim," a third tale was needed to "fill out" a volume. It would not be until 1902 that Conrad could write "The End of the Tether"; that third story would permit the publication of YOUTH And Two Other Stories in November 1902 -- more than two years after LORD JIM.~This letter, first and foremost, demonstrates in the author's own hand how it was his intention that the three "Marlow" stories should form a single published book -- which never happened. Further, the letter gives a hint of the anguish he. Bookseller Inventory # 12984

Item Description: [San Francisco]: A. Roman & Brother. 1856., 1856. Single sheet (13 2/8 x 18 6/8 inches). A FINE lithographed view of Shasta, with original hand-colour in full.

Kuchel and Dresel capture this bird's-eye view of Shasta, in Shasta County, California only a few years after it was created as one of the original counties of California in 1850. In 1852 parts of the county's territory were given to Siskiyou County, and later to Tehama County in 1856. Named after Mount Shasta which in turn is from the English equivalent for the name of an Indian tribe that once lived in the area. Peters, "California on Stone", pages 143 and 145; see Streeter 2787.

Most volumes from 1860 to 1901 are bound in contemporary publisher's cloth (with some rebound in full cloth), volumes from 1902 to 1924 are rebound in full cloth (most with the original wrappers included), and single monthly issues from the 1920s and early 1930s are in the original printed wrappers. Ex-library set with bookplates, most 19th Century volumes with a small embossed stamp on the title pages and a perforated stamp on the plates. The earliest volumes are chipped at the spines and edges, a few with split spines and detached boards, else overall a good set of bound volumes; the single issues in wraps are unmarked and very good or better. A very nice assemblage of notable 19th Century literature and illustrations. Bookseller Inventory # 371693

Included is the extremely scarce dust jacket -- which, other than the slight browning of its spine, is in FINE condition -- essentially no wear or soil at all, and most important, no "restoration." Furthermore, the "shadows" on the free endpapers confirm that this jacket has spent its life on this particular volume.

Item Description: 1912. [to Reggie & Maisie Gibbon] London: Eveleigh Nash, 1912. 2 pp undated ads. Original dark blue cloth. First Edition of this autobiographical work, which initially appeared serially in Ford Madox Ford's newly-founded "English Review."~What is remarkable about Conrad's reminiscences is how clearly he employed fictional techniques worked out with Ford, wherein the narrative intensity increases as the story develops. To achieve that, Conrad used a constantly interrupted narrative as a way of unsettling conventional sequences and, thereby, established anticipation of the next episode. Conrad needed a method that permitted intimacy, up to a certain point, and then withdrawal, when he had revealed enough. so his reminiscences would be matters of attack and retreat. [Karl]~SOME REMINISCENCES is generally believed to have slightly preceded the American edition -- which, as with subsequent English editions, was titled A PERSONAL RECORD. Wise claimed that only 1,000 copies were printed (apparently including some bound by Bell as the colonial issue), but Nash records have not survived to substantiate this.~This copy is in fine, bright condition (discreet bookplate of the remarkable Conrad collector Stanley J. Seeger). Cagle A15b.1. Housed in a morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.~This is an inscribed presentation copy from Conrad, with the following in his hand on the front free endpaper: "To | Maisie and Reggie | from their affectionate | J.C. | 1912". Perceval "Reggie" Gibbon (1879-1926) was, like Conrad, a former seaman who had become a writer; both used J.B. Pinker as an agent, which may be how they first met. When Conrad suffered his nervous breakdown in early 1910 (as he was completing UNDER WESTERN EYES), it was Gibbon who came to the rescue: Jessie Conrad later wrote of those months, "If it had not been for Perceval Gibbon who came often and always, it seemed, in the nick of time, I feel sure I would not have held out" [quoted in Karl p. 680]. Gibbon dedicated his Margaret Harding to the Conrads in 1911, and a few years later Conrad would reciprocate by dedicating VICTORY to Gibbon and his wife Maisie. Conrad and "Reggie" had a rather intense flurry of correspondence during the 'Teens, but most of it was lost during the Great War so not a lot is known about their friendship. At one point the two men considered collaborating on a play based on both men's early seafaring experiences in Africa (as in Conrad's "Heart of Darkness"). Toward the end of the war, Gibbon was a war correspondent with the Italian Army for The New York Times, and after the war he became a major in the British Royal Marines. As veteran Conrad collectors know, the most intimate inscriptions Conrad wrote were those he signed merely "J.C.". Bookseller Inventory # 12673
