Founded in 1906 by J.M. Dent, the Everyman Library has always tried to make the best books ever written available to the greatest number of people at the lowest possible price. Unique editorial features that help Everyman Paperback Classics stand out from the crowd include: a leading scholar or literary critic's introduction to the text, a biography of the author, a chronology of her or his life and times, a historical selection of criticism, and a concise plot summary. All books published since 1993 have also been completely restyled: all type has been reset, to offer a clarity and ease of reading unique among editions of the classics; a vibrant, full-color cover design now complements these great texts with beautiful contemporary works of art. But the best feature must be Everyman's uniquely low price. Each Everyman title offers these extensive materials at a price that competes with the most inexpensive editions on the market-but Everyman Paperbacks have durable binding, quality paper, and the highest editorial and scholarly standards.From the Back Cover:
Joseph Conrad's account of the voyage of a sailing-ship from Bombay harbour to the Port of London combines uniquely the skills of the master mariner with the power of the master novelist. It evokes in intense and exact detail what it felt like to negotiate the great wind belts of two oceans. But is is also Conrad's first major exploration of the psychology of service-of the pressure on a group of seamen 'brought to the test...of the moral problems of conduct' by their encounter with elemental nature and with the secret terrors and evasions of two of their comrades.
