1911. London: Methuen & Co., (1911). 32 pp ads dated Sept 1911. Original red cloth decorated in gilt. First Edition, which consisted of 2,250 domestic copies (plus 750 colonial). This is a tale of Russian revolutionaries, centered about the character Razumov (whose name was Conrad's working title of the book). Harper, which published the American edition, declined to handle the serialization "because their magazine circulated in Russia and they feared it would cause a breach in their good relations with that country" [Cagle].~This copy has the ads dated September -- some are dated August, but the book was not actually published until 5 October. The volume is in very good to near-fine condition (very little wear, but there is a very faint mark on the spine and there is a partially-erased library ink-stamp on the front pastedown and on the last leaf of ads). Cagle A14a(1). (Inventory #: 13480)
