London and New York: Harpers & Brothers, 1904. A Tale of the Seaboard. First Edition / First Printing. Hardcover. First issue with all points: 1904 date on title page; page 187 misprinted as "871"; last page numbered 480. 8vo original blue/grey cloth & boards, with gilt lettering on spine. Widely regarded as Conrad's best work. Binding is tight with no cocking or leaning. Lettering on spine is bright. Only very slight traces of wear to extremities and some light dust-soiling to page edges. There is a small smudge/stain affecting several pages before and after page 450, but overall an exceptional near-fine to fine copy of this classic novel of English literature.
