YOUTH: A NARRATIVE: and Two Other Stories.

Edinburgh: Blackwood and Sons, 1902. First edition, first issue with ads dated "10/02" (Cagle doesn't assign priority, but one might assume copies such as this one, with ads dated October, precede those with November's ads). Three stories or novellas, including one of Conrad's most highly regarded works, HEART OF DARKNESS, which explores parallels between London and Africa as places of darkness, with little difference between so-called civilised people and those described as savages (Wikipedia). Connolly, in his MODERN MOVEMENT, calls it "a masterpiece of sinister deterioration seen by the narrator who is himself profoundly altered by it" [Connolly 14]. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked HEART OF DARKNESS among its hundred best novels in English of the twentieth century. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt, titles and floral decorations to front board in black. A very good copy with some cover aging, spine a little darkened, minor wear on corners and spine ends, and very light foxing on front page edges.
