A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. This first critical edition of Almayer's Folly (1895), Conrad's first novel, is a probing presentation of the strains of life at a cultural crossroad. Almayer, a Dutch trader stranded in Sambir up a virtually unknown equatorial river, finds himself immersed in a dense world of cultures, both old and new. The introduction and notes by in this first critical edition demonstrate the novel's importance as an exploration of colonialism, and mark the initial appearance of Conrad's fictional technique and conception of human life that make him a key figure in the evolution and achievment of literary moderism.
