UNDER WESTERN EYES. Joseph Conrad. UNDER WESTERN EYES.
London: Metheun, 1911. First edition. Conrad labored for several years over this work, which was written after the failed Russian Revolution of 1905. He suffered a nervous breakdown after delivering it to his publisher, of which his wife, Jessie Conrad, wrote: "he lives mixed up in the scenes and holds converse with the characters." One of only 2,250 copies. Red cloth with spine lettering and design stamped in gold; 32-page publisher's catalog dated September 1911 at rear. (Copies are variously noted with catalogs dated August or September). Spine slightly faded, minor nicks to spine ends, otherwise very good.

YOUTH: A NARRATIVE: and Two Other Stories. Joseph Conrad. 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.

NINE LITTLE GOSLINGS. Susan Coolidge. NINE LITTLE GOSLINGS.
Boston: Roberts Brothers, 1875. First edition. By Sarah Chauncy Woolsey, written under the pseudonym "Susan Coolidge." Coolidge first gained popularity for her "Katy Did" series in 1872; the series--a greater literary influence in England than in the United States--has since been recognized as a precursor to the popular British girls' school stories that proliferated in the twentieth century. Nine stories with nursery-rhyme titles: "Goosey, Goosey Gander," "Little Bo-Peep," "One, Two, Buckle My Shoe," etc. Illustrated throughout at chapter headings, and with a full-page frontis drawing. Gift inscription dated 1875, spine ends, hinges and corners showing wear, and black endpapers with a few small skinned marks, but still very good.
