London: Heinemann, 1901. First edition. Conrad and Ford's collaborative, quasi-science fiction novel which explores "a societal shift from a generation of people who have traditional values of interdependence, being overtaken by a modern generation who believe in expediency, callously using political power to bring down the old order" (Wiki). Seems to be an age-old refrain. Remainder issue; one of 199 copies bound up in 1909. Somewhat smaller than the first issue at 183 x 125 mm and in a cheaper binding of smooth yellow cloth. All edges trimmed. Offsets on endpapers, otherwise very good. THEIR COLLABORATIVE, QUASI-SCI-FI NOVEL.
