Heart of Darkness is a leather-bound book with gold gilt pages and is an excellent addition to your vintage Joseph Conrad collection or Easton Press
It is a story within a story, following a character named Charlie Marlow, who recounts his adventure to a group of men on board an anchored ship. The story told is of his early life as a ferry boat captain. Although his job was to transport ivory downriver, Charlie develops an interest in investing in an ivory procurement agent, Kurtz, who is employed by the government.
Preceded by his reputation as a brilliant emissary of progress, Kurtz has now established himself as a god among the natives in “one of the darkest places on earth.” Marlow suspects something else of Kurtz: he has gone mad.
A reflection on corruptive European colonialism and a journey into the nightmare psyche of one of the corrupted, Heart of Darkness is considered one of the most influential works ever written.
A truly, gorgeously handsome volume, designed to become an heirloom, in collectible and gift-giving condition.
Heart of Darkness is in excellent vintage condition for its age with no rips or tears. Please use pictures as a guide. Have any questions or need more photos, ask.
This beautiful leather-bound book is printed on sturdy, acid-neutral paper specially milled that conforms to all guidelines established for permanence and durability.
