"Much of the material in the Companion is entirely new, compiled from scattered Conrad resources, many of which have never been published before. The authors, together with a small team of specialist contributors, have brought together the latest findings of modern scholarship to provide a resource for all Conrad enthusiasts. More than 400 entries arranged A-Z for immediate access, including much material presented here for the first time; beautifully illustrated with over 30 integrated black-and-white illustrations; fully cross-referenced to facilitate browsing; thematic index listing headwords by topic; and additional material includes a chronology of Conrad's life, a family tree, and an extensive bibliography."--BOOK JACKET.
