About This Item

London: The Gresham Publishing Co., 1925-1928. 22 volumes. The scarce and handsome Medallion Edition. With frontispiece illustrations to the volumes and titles printed in black and red. 8vo, in the publisher's original blue cloth, the upper covers with medallion profile portraits of Conrad. A very fine and handsome set. A very distinguished looking set of Conrad's works. The tasteful presentation is fitting to this master prose stylist who brought a non-English sensibility into English literature. His stories and novels, many with nautical settings, depict the trials of the human spirit in the midst of an impassive, inscrutable universe. His narrative style and anti-heroic characters have influenced many authors, including F. Scott Fitzgerald, William Faulkner, Ernest Hemingway, André Malraux, George Orwell, Graham Greene, Gabriel García Márquez, John le Carré, V. S. Naipaul, Philip Roth, J. M. Coetzee, and Salman Rushdie.
