Conrad, Joseph. Lord Jim. Norwalk: Easton Press, 1978. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover, original leather bound with 22kt gold accents and titles.
Presented is the Easton Press first edition printing of Joseph Conrad's Lord Jim. Originally published as a serial in Blackwood's Magazine from October 1899 to November 1900, this Easton Press printing was published in 1978.
An early and primary event in the story is the abandonment of a passenger ship in distress by its crew, including a young British seaman named Jim. He is publicly censured for this action and the novel follows his later attempts at coming to terms with himself and his past. In 1998, the Modern Library ranked Lord Jim 85th on its list of the 100 best English-language novels of the 20th century.
This is from the Easton Press collection of The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written. This printing of this classic novel would be a prize in any collection.
