Canterbury (England): Printed for the Author by H. J. Goulden, Ltd, 1921. Quarto. iii, 69pp. First edition. One of 52 or 53 copies. Written in 1920, this is Conrad’s own adaptation for the stage of the novel published in 1907. This edition in wrappers was followed in 1923 by an edition of 1000 in boards. The production, performed in London in the fall of 1922, was not a success. Conrad wrote of the critics: “I was amused by their touching anonymity in damning the play. It was like a chorus of parrots.” A fine copy of a scarce and fragile Conrad publication in printed wrappers. Item #12764
