Original green cloth, titles to spine gilt, titles and floral decorations to front board in black. Bookplate to front pastedown.

Otherwise an excellent copy. First edition, first impression, first issue with the earliest 32-page catalogue at the rear dated 10/02. This volume collects three novellas by Conrad (1857-1924), all of which had previously been serialised in Blackwood's Magazine in 1898, 1899, and 1902 respectively. Of this volume, Conrad wrote: '"Youth" and "Heart of Darkness" are the first short stories of mine which attracted attention to my work in a wider sphere. Most critics dismissed "The End of the Tether" either with contempt or with a few cursory remarks' (Wise).
