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. First issue, without the dedication page added to later copies. Good or better with covers soiled, spine darkened, and quarter-inch loss to head of spine.
