$65.00

Set in the Belgian colonies of Africa, Heart of Darkness is the subtle, unsettling, and elegant story of Charles Marlow traveling by ferry boat into the African interior to retrieve Kurtz, a dynamic and successful ivory trader. The novella showcases some of the finest prose in English. It also critiques colonial rule and racism in King Leopold II’s Belgian colonies. First published in 1899, the work has been reread and appreciated for well over a century now. It was the inspiration for Francis Ford Coppola’s 1979 film Apocalypse Now.

This collector’s edition is in fine condition. Finely bound in full black leather with lavish 22k gilt stamping. Raised bands. Silk moire endpapers and bookmark sewn in. All edges gilt.

A fine collector’s copy of Joseph Conrad’s greatest work.
