About This Item

1925. With a Preface by R. B. Cunninghame Graham. London: T. Fisher Unwin, (1925). Original dark green cloth, with dust jacket. First (English) Edition, published on the same day as the American. This posthumous collection of four tales, published the year after Conrad died, includes "The Tale," considered to be one of his best short stories. The others are "The Warrior's Soul," "Prince Roman" and (one of his earliest, written around 1884) "The Black Mate." The volume is in fine condition (spine gilt less than bright, as always); the dust jacket is near-fine, with one shallow chip at the foot of the spine but with less soil than usual. Keating 193; Smith pp 96-98.
