The first in a projected series of four volumes of Joseph Conrad's short fiction, this attractively (but inexpensively) bound collection of the first nine of Conrad's stories would be a convenience for any library lacking a full set of the works. Editor Hynes, author of several books dealing with early 20th-century culture, has also included a short introduction that briefly summarizes Conrad's life and work and touches lightly on the standard approaches to his moral and political preoccupations. The book also contains Conrad's own notes on the stories, a chronology of his life, a bibliography of the stories (but not of the criticism on them), and a comment on the copy text.-P. D.
