More Information
Joseph Conrad, born 3 December 1857 in the Ukraine, real name Josef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski, till 1924. He led a very adventurous life in his early years, being a gun runner, dueller and adventurer before calming down a little and joining the merchant navy. He left the service in 1894 and began writing. Success came eventually and he became a very popular author in his time. His best work is generally regarded as Nostromo, though possibly his best known is Lord Jim. Collecting his first editions is probably beyond the means of the average collector, the early titles do sell for considerable sums, they are also rare which makes the possibility of putting together a full set a somewhat unrealistic ambition for all those without a great commitment and a considerable budget. For those operating on a more modest budget there are plenty of later editions available, many with attractive bindings which would make a fine substitute.
