Joseph Conrad’s (1857-1924) best-known work, “Lord Jim,” deals with themes of redemption and guilt through the story of a sailor who abandons his ship and its passengers to save his own life; the book is ranked by many as one of the greatest English-language novels of the twentieth century. The story is narrated by Captain Charles Marlow, a recurring character in Conrad’s books who also narrates “Heart of Darkness”; here he takes a more active role in the story, and the core of the novel is often thought to reside in Marlow’s interpretation of the events of Jim’s life.

 

The novel first appeared as a serial in Blackwood’s Magazine from October 1899 to November 1900. This volume is the first edition, first printing of Conrad’s book, and contains all first issue points as stated below.
