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: [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. This fine view of Shasta 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.

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.

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

Item Description: 1917. [inscribed to Arthur Symons] A Confession. London & Toronto: J. M. Dent & Sons, (1917). 18 pp undated ads. Original light grey-green cloth decorated in brown. First Edition, first issue (so stated), of Conrad's third autobiographical (though fictionalized) work -- "a Far-Eastern story of a haunted ship. No reader of THE SHADOW-LINE will ever forget the first mate and the silent crew of the schooner which had such mysterious difficulty in passing latitude 8 degrees 20 minutes" [from the ads]. This copy is printed on laid paper, as usual (some copies, perhaps those intended for the colonies, are on wove paper). This is a remarkably fine, bright copy. Cagle A21a.1. Housed in a (dried) morocco-backed slipcase with inner chemise.~This copy is inscribed and signed by Conrad, "Arthur Symons | from | Joseph Conrad | March 1917 [the month of publication]". Arthur Symons (1865-1945) was an author, a poet and a critic who was extremely influential in the "symbolist school" of the 1890s. As editor of The Savoy, in 1896 he published Conrad's first short story ("The Idiots"); according to Conrad's wife, Symons was the only poet Conrad read for pleasure (such that he used a Symons verse as the epigraph for TWIXT LAND & SEA in 1912). Symons and Conrad wound up as neighbors in Kent, and also had in common severe bouts with "nerves" during the years 1909-1912. Bookseller Inventory # 12657
