Joseph Conrad: The Man and A Burial in Kent

New York: William Edwin Rudge, 1925. Hardcover. One of 450 copies for sale from an edition of 485. Nicely inscribed by authour Elbridge Adams: "To Edith Carnahan from Elbridge Adams with the somewhat disquieting consciousness that the best of the book is not of his making. Christmas 1925." Designed by Bruce Rogers with his printer's device on rear endpaper. Bound in marbled green paper boards with cream linen spine with paper title label. Covers are chipped, rubbed, and bumped, with a tear to front right cover and left rear cover exposing the black board underneath. Spine is darkened and title label is chipped. Interior pages are very good, with a small wrinkle to top edge of half title. Frontispiece portrait of Conrad by Muirhead Bone. Still a nice copy with the charming personal inscription. Quarto. 72 pages. LIT/011023. Very Good.
