The Oxford reader's companion to Conrad by Owen Knowles ( Book )
26 editions published between 2000 and 2011 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"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
"My dear friend" further letters to and about Joseph Conrad by Owen Knowles ( )
9 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 894 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A sequel to A Portrait in Letters: Correspondence to and about Joseph Conrad (Rodopi, 1995), this volume collects and annotates letters to Joseph Conrad by his family, friends, admirers, and publishers. An indispensable companion to the writer¿s own letters, it restores the quality of exchange, interaction, and debate that belongs to a major correspondence. It also leads to a fuller, more rounded picture of Conrad in his personal and professional dealings: both of the mutualities and rituals that underpinned his close friendships and of the terms underlying his mutual disagreements with others. Familiar names are here ¿ Arnold Bennett, John Galsworthy, Edward Garnett, Ford Madox Ford, Bertrand Russell, and H. G. Wells ¿ although in largely unfamiliar form, through unpublished or inaccessible materials. Another notable feature of the volume is the newly recovered correspondence relating to the implementation, by Henry Newbolt and William Rothenstein, of the Royal Bounty Fund grant awarded during one of Conrad¿s most severe financial crises (1904¿06). An essential resource for the scholar, this vivid collection can also be read with pleasure by the general reader for the light it throws on Conrad the man and writer and the rich context in which he moved

9 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 356 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This freshly researched bibliography is designed to provide a selective survey of Conrad scholarship and criticism in English from 1914 (when the first full-length study of Conrad's fiction was published) to 1990. It offers access to five main areas of material: primary texts and preliminary materials, such as reference books and bibliographies; introductory studies; full-length criticisms, symposia and general essays; studies of Conrad's individual works; and criticism devoted to more specialized aspects, ranging from entries on Conrad's ethical and technical preoccupations to those on his language, attitudes to the sea, women, imperialism and religion. All items in this bibliography are arranged chronologically in order to provide a basic outline of the historical development, landmarks and schools of Conrad criticism

The collected letters of Joseph Conrad by Joseph Conrad ( Book )
3 editions published between 1988 and 2002 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is the second of the projected eight-volume edition comprising all the surviving letters of Joseph Conrad. Once completed the edition will have assembled over 3,500 letters, one third of them as yet unpublished and many others only published before in inaccurate versions. The period covered by this volume, 1898-1902, was one of considerable achievement and anxiety for Conrad. The birth of his first child, the death of Stephen Crane, the murder of a friend's son, an encounter with an early X-ray machine, imperial wars in Cuba and South Africa - these events forced Conrad to face the problems of identity in terms of family, nation, history, and the cosmic order. This is also the period of 'Youth', 'Amy Foster', 'Typhoon', Lord Jim, and 'Heart of Darkness'. Often funny, always thoughtful, full of verbal energy even in the toils of severe depression, the letters in Volume Two present Conrad at a crucial though vulnerable moment of his life and literary career."--Publisher's description of v. 2
Vanity fair : a novel without a hero by William Makepeace Thackeray ( Book )
3 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Vanity Fair is a story of two heroines---one humble, the other a scheming social climber---who meet in boarding school and embark on markedly different lives. Amid the swirl of London's posh ballrooms and affairs of love and war, their fortunes rise and fall. Through it all, Thackeray lampoons the shallow values of his society, reserving the most pointed barbs for the upper crust. What results is a prescient look at the dogged pursuit of wealth and status---and the need for humility
