CONRAD, Joseph.


Item Number: 69864

London: Harper & Brothers, 1904.

First edition of what many consider to be Conrad’s masterpiece, one of 2000 copies. Octavo, original blue cloth stamped in gilt. An excellent near fine example with some light rubbing, spine gilt nice and bright, armorial bookplate to the front free endpaper. A very nice example.

A gripping tale of capitalist exploitation and rebellion, set in the fictional South American mining town of Sulaco, Conrad employs flashbacks and glimpses of the future to depict the lure of silver and its effects on men. "Nostromo" is a classic tale of the power of money, its ability to corrupt and the turmoil that this corruption can create. Conrad's deep moral consciousness and masterful narrative technique are at their best in what many consider one of his best works. Named by Modern Library as one of top 100 novels of the twentieth century.
