"AMONG THE VERY GREAT NOVELISTS IN THE LANGUAGE": CONRAD'S WORKS, HANDSOMELY BOUND

CONRAD, Joseph. The Works. London: Gresham, 1925-28. Twenty-three volumes. Octavo, later three-quarter navy morocco gilt, raised bands, top edges gilt. $8200.

Conrad did not publish his first novel until the age of 38, but his work earned him a place with the great modernists of the 20th-century, "among the very great novelists in the language" (Drabble, 225). "Conrad's work at its best achieved a synthesis of theme, treatment, and language of a kind without precedent in English literature… Novelty of theme and the piquancy of a non-English origin established him as a romantic, almost as a legendary figure. His stories had excitement of a new kind, and his style, by its very queerness, could allure… powerfully… achieving a perfect equilibrium of pictorial and narrative style" (DNB).

Fine condition.
