'What is so remarkable about these late letters is their energy, freshness and originality ... We turn to the letters, as to the fiction and essays, in order to experience a vanished world and to understand better the mind and temperament that transited to contemporary and future generations those values on which the health of human society depends ... In previous reviews of volumes in the magnificent Cambridge University Press The Collected Letters of Joseph Conrad this reviewer has paid tribute to the edition, which is unrivalled for clarity, precision of presentation, and accuracy of scholarship. In addition to the meticulous editing of the letters themselves, the supporting documentation are nothing less than superb. ... The achievement of Laurence Davies and his co-editors in [this] volume, as in the earlier ones, is beyond praise.' Mara Kalnins, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge
"The care and scholarly attention the editors have expended in compiling these volumes has made this edition of Conrad's letters far superior to any previous edition....will be one of the most useful resources for Conrad scholars for generations to come." --Choice Magazine
