Slight wear, no jacket. Gray Kent D Endpapers. Toledano Spine # 8. Book Circa 1939. (1931), 12mo, ix, 417pp. [1], "In Lord Jim A Tale Conrad wanted to give us 'a bit of a psychological document,' an inquiry into the nature of heroism and cowardice. Although few books appear to be more disordered and bewildering, the basic facts of the tale, Jim's act of cowardice in leaving the Patna with its load of pilgrims; his facing of the Court of Inquiry; his attempt to atone for that act in the trading post in Patusan are simply enough. Jim himself appears on the surface to be genuinely and typically English, but in fact his sensitivity and imagination make him open to destructive forces which take him to the point of breakdown."
