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: 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 (18541937) 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: 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 (18751967) 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: Metheun (1914)., London:, 1914. Book Condition: Near Fine. First edition. Considered his break-through novel -- Conrad went from an author with smallish sales and a discriminating audience to a best-seller with a huge audience with this book -- CHANCE is unusual among Conrad's novels for its female main character and focus on social issues surrounding feminism and financial speculation. Second issue, as usually seen, with cancel title-leaf dated 1914 on verso (the first issue, with integral title leaf dated 1913 on verso, is rare). This copy with 8-page catalog dated Autumn 1913, as called for, without advertisement for Arnold Lunn's THE HARROVIANS on p.6 (indicating it is the the earliest printing of the catalog). Followed by a 32-page publisher's catalog dated September 1913 and with another "Autumn 1913" catalog laid in (4-page, different contents than above). Cagle calls for a 32-page catalog dated "July 1913" and makes no note of a 4-page catalog, laid in or otherwise, possibly making this copy unique or scarce at least. Original green cloth with spine lettering in gilt. Bookplate of Henry Pennell Frank on front pastedown. Near fine with only scattered foxing and the barest wear on the tips, most likely due to the fact that it has been protected by the original, first-issue dust jacket (with "6/-" on spine). Dust jacket front and rear panels about complete but spine chipped at both head and tail, and old tape reinforcement on verso of front flap fold and spine hinges. A very scarce jacket.

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: [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.

Item Description: T. Unwin Fisher, London, 1898. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Hardcover. First English edition of Conrad's first collection of short stories, published in both America and England in 1898. Author's presentation copy, inscribed "For J. B. Pinker, Joseph Conrad." The book marks the first stage of Conrad learning to write for popular magazines: "in that book I come nearer to the popular notion of tale-telling than in any previous work of mine" (writing to Unwin, Collected Letters, II., p.48). Pinker was one of the first literary agents in London, and became one of the most important agents of the twentieth century, with such clients as H.G. Wells, Stephen Crane, Henry James, and Ford Madox Ford. Pinker was "superbly attuned to the changing economic climate of the 1890s publishing market and served the interests of several 'difficult' writers with a skillful blend of shrewdness, tact, generosity, and long-suffering" (Knowles and Moore). This could not have been better demonstrated than with his relationship with Conrad, in which the agent was required to play many roles: friend, banker, father-figure and general factotum. Pinker could see Conrad's potential, but in many ways the author was ill-placed to survive the cutthroat market of the time, committed as he was "to a form of experimental novel, the unpredictable gestation of which involved an enormous amount of energy, time, and living costs" (op.cit.) As Conrad later gratefully acknowledged, Pinker believed in him and backed him for the long term, bankrolling him through the lean years when he had yet to be a commercial success, in the hope of future payments and royalties. Conrad was forced to split himself between his long serious projects like Nostromo and Under Western Eyes and more commercial journalistic material. Tensions were high between author and agent in these years between 1904 and 1910, with Pinker being asked for larger and larger advances to fund medical costs, household bills and overseas trips. The agent's requests for itemization and justification were resented by Conrad, and he sometimes resisted his agent's attempts to link payments to fixed amounts of delivered copy. In December 1909 Pinker's patience finally snapped after the author had been working on Under Western Eyes for two years and then broke off, against his agent's wishes, to write for the English Review. Pinker threatened to cut off all funds; his author retaliated by threatening to throw the manuscript into the fire. After an explosive row the two did not speak for two years. After the dramatic upturn in Conrad's popularity and finances after 1914 the author could finally begin to settle his debts, and the two men resumed their relationship, meeting weekly, spending weekends at each other's homes, and even collaborating on a screenplay. Conrad later wrote: "those books which, people say, are an asset of English Literature owe their existence to Mr. Pinker as much as to me. For 15 years of my writing life he has seen me through periods of unproductiveness[,] through illnesses[,] through all sorts of troubles." (Collected Letters, V, p.619). Conrad was deeply affected by his agent's sudden death in 1922. Bound in original green cloth with light bumping to corners. Offsetting to free front endpaper not affecting the legibility of inscription. Text block has pulled away from front hinge but still tight although some interior gutters visible. Library stamp on rear pastedown, offsetting and piece of rear free endpaper torn away. Housed in a green cloth slipcase. With bookplate of book collector Stanley J. Seeger. Very good condition despite noted flaws. 297 pages. LIT/011116. Bookseller Inventory # 28898

Sets of the complete works of Conrad are scarce; signed sets are particularly rare. A beautiful set in the original dust jackets. Conrad did not publish his first novel until the age of 38, but his work earned him a place with the great modernists of the 20th-century, "among the very great novelists in the language" (Drabble, 225). "Conrad's work at its best achieved a synthesis of theme, treatment, and language of a kind without precedent in English literatureÉ Novelty of theme and the piquancy of a non-English origin established him as a romantic, almost as a legendary figure. His stories had excitement of a new kind, and his style, by its very queerness, could allureÉ powerfullyÉ achieving a perfect equilibrium of pictorial and narrative style" (DNB). This edition was originally intended to be 377 copies, each signed by Conrad. As he died after having only signed 99 sets, the plan was changed and the signed sheets became part of this Memorial Edition. Includes all of his major and minor works, with several posthumously published stories and essays. Minor chipping to edges of some wrappers only. Fine condition. Signed.
