39 editions published between 1973 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 2,043 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This new, extensively revised edition presents a wealth of new material from recently-opened former eastern-bloc archives. There is new material on Conrad's father's genealogy and his role in Polish politics; Conrad's service in the French and British merchant marines; his early English reading and correspondence; his experiences in the Congo; the circumstances of writing his memoirs, and much more. In addition, several aspects of Conrad's life and works are more thoroughly analyzed: his problems with the English language; his borrowings from French writers; his attitude toward socialism, his reaction to the reception of his books"--Publisher website (August 2007)

Conrad in perspective : essays on art and fidelity by Zdzisław Najder( Book )

17 editions published between 1997 and 2005 in English and held by 545 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Zdzislaw Najder, one of the world's leading authorities on Joseph Conrad and author of the major biography "Joseph Conrad: A Chronicle" (1983), is widely acclaimed for his particular insights into Conrad's Polish background. The fruits of thirty years of Conrad study appear in this landmark volume of his essays, which explore a wide range of topics: Conrad's national and cultural heritage; his fictions, from the unfinished "Sisters" and "Lord Jim" to "The Secret Agent"; his attitude towards Russia in general and Dostoevsky in particular; his concepts of man and society; and the role of the idea of honour in his work. In a series of more general essays, Najder goes on to place Conrad's work within a broad European philosophical, political, and literary context. "Conrad in Perspective" offers new insights into the life and work of one of the twentieth century's greatest novelists by one of his most perceptive critics

A personal record by Joseph Conrad( Book )

8 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 212 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Personal Record (1912) both documents and fictionalizes Joseph Conrad's early life and the opening stages of his careers as a writer and as a seaman. It is also an artistic and political manifesto. The introduction traces Conrad's sources and gives the history of writing and reception. The essay on the text and the apparatus set out the textual history. The notes explain literary and historical references, identify places, and gloss foreign terms. Four maps and a genealogical table supplement this explanatory material. This edition of A Personal Record, established through modern textual scholarship, presents Conrad's reminiscences and the volume's two prefaces in forms more authoritative than any so far printed."--Jacket
