    More Information:

    Text of first limitation page reads: "This edition is limited to four hundred and ninety-nine numbered sets and ten sets for presentation." It is numbered "33."

    The second limitation page (pictured) reads: "This edition is limited to three hundred and seventy-seven copies. The first volume of each set is signed by the author." The space for the number of this set is blank. Below this text is the signature of Joseph Conrad. At the bottom of the page is this text, added after Mr. Conrad had signed the un-numbered limitation pages: "Publisher's Note: At the time of Mr. Conrad's death he had signed only ninety-nine of these pages. It was necessary to change the plan, and these signature pages are here incorporated in this Memorial Edition."

    As such, the "Memorial Edition" consists of 99 signed copies, of which this is number 33.
