    First Edition in the Original Dust Jacket

    Joseph Conrad. Within the Tides. Tales. London: J. M. Dent & Sons, 1915.

    First edition. Small octavo (7.25 x 4.8125 inches; 184 x 123 mm.). [8], 280 pages. Title-page printed in red and black.

    Publisher's light olive green bold vertically-ribbed cloth. Front cover stamped in blind with the publisher's device within a single blind rule border, spine ruled and lettered in gilt within a columnar design. Top edge stained green (the stain from the top edge has just entered the upper margin on a few leaves). An immaculate copy, with only a tiny bit of rubbing to the foot of the spine and a tiny blister to the cloth on the rear cover near the outer edge. In the original gray paper dust jacket printed in dark blue and red. The jacket has light edgewear at the top edge, a half-inch tear to the front panel, just entering the image, the spine and edges very slightly darkened. The endpapers are very slightly browned from the dust jacket flaps. Chemised in a quarter dark green morocco book-backed slipcase with the spine ruled and lettered in gilt with five raised bands.

    "Within the Tides was published on February 24, 1915, in an edition of 3,500 copies" (Smith).

    Smith, Conrad, 19.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
