THE INHERITORS: An Extravagant Story; [Two volumes].

London: Heinemann, 1901. First edition. First issue, without the dedication page added to later copies. Conrad and Ford's collaborative quasi-science-fiction novel exploring a societal shift in power. Decorative yellow cloth. Good or better with covers soiled, spine darkened, and quarter-inch loss to head of spine. Together with the remainder issue; one of 199 copies printed in 1901 but not bound until 1909. It's somewhat smaller than the first issue and in a cheaper binding of smooth plain yellow cloth with all edges trimmed. Offsets on endpapers, otherwise very good.
