CONRAD, Joseph. Within the Tides. London: Dent, 1915. 8o. Original green linen-grained cloth (front inner hinge a bit tender, natural darkening to free endpapers).
FIRST EDITION of these four maritime tales, the binding variant in linen-grained cloth (the majority are in vertically ribbed cloth -- with no priority). PRESENTATION COPY, inscribed by Conrad on front free endpaper: "To Lady Millais with real regard from the Author." The recipient was probably the wife of Sir John Millais, a Conrad friend (and son of the painter?). Cagle A18a (1); Smith 19.
