The Rover - Joseph Conrad 1923 - T. Fisher Unwin Ltd, London - First English Edition, First Issue First edition first issue in a nice example of the full colour dust jacket showing a seascape (instead of the more common simple black and white variant).

The Rover takes place in the south of France, against the backdrop of the French Revolution, Napoleon's rise to power, and the French-English rivalry in the Mediterranean. Peyrol (a master-gunner in the French republican navy, pirate, and for nearly fifty years "rover of the outer seas") attempts to find refuge in an isolated farmhouse (Escampobar) on the Giens Peninsula near Hyères.

The story is about Peyrol's attempt at withdrawal from an action- and blood-filled life; his involvement with the pariahs of Escampobar; the struggle for his identity and allegiance, which is resolved in his last voyage.
