1 Conrad, Joseph An Outcast of the Islands
New York Appleton and Company 1896 First Edition Half-Leather 
In Very Good+ condition. This is the publisher's Deluxe Binding: half burgundy roan with marbled boards. The spine is stamped in gilt. Octavo. Top-edge gilt. 335pps. Appleton's Town and Country Library No. 198. This item has recently been beautifully and professionally rebacked in gilt-tooled matching roan at The Currier Bindery; the corners, which had had slight wear, have been rebuilt. There is rubbing to the edges of the marbled boards with a small abrasion on the front panel, a couple of short edge-tears to preliminary pages, and a bit of light discoloration to the rear pastedown. The binding is tight and square; both hinges are sound. The text is clean and bright; no previous ownership markings. In brief, a very nice and presentable collector's copy of Conrad's second book -- uncommon in the deluxe binding. ".Peter Willems, a clerk in Macassar, granted a 'second chance' at a remote river trading post, falls ever more hopelessly into traps set by himself and others. The pawn of Babalatchi -- the one-eyed schemer of power politics -- and of the rich Abdulla (who uses Willems to increase his own wealth), his fate is sealed by his lover, Aissa, and by Almayer, an embittered fellow countryman." Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Satisfaction guaranteed or all costs you've incurred will be promptly refunded.
