Doesn't look like this was published until 1925 or 1926 in serialized form - http://www.conradfirst.net/view/serialisation?id=164 
Looks like it wasn't published in book form until 1926 in his Last Essays - 
https://archive.org/details/in.ernet.dli.2015.206431 Congo Diary starts on page 231. 

The "Up-River Book" is a recreation of Conrad's journey by a modern author.

Subject: [PW] Conrad Notebook Request

My stepdaughter Lynn is in a graduate class at the U. of New Mexico on
Joseph Conrad's Heart of Darkness.  For this class she is trying to find a
facsimile image of the first page of Conrad's "Up-River Book," his log of
the trip up the Congo River that inspired the book.  She thinks she came
across it on the internet, but we haven't been able to find it again.  The
book has been reprinted with Heart of Darkness and The Congo Diary in two
books edited by Zdzislaw Najder, but apparently they don't have the
graphics.  Can anybody help?  Thank you very much.
