Typhoon and other Stories - Joseph Conrad 1903 - William Heinemann, London - First Edition Thus A nice copy of the scarce first edition. Typhoon is a classic tale of the sea which describes how Captain MacWhirr sails the Siamese steamer "Nan-Shan" into a typhoon. Amy Foster is the story of a Polish immigrant who on his way to America becomes shipwrecked off the cost of England. Since he speaks no English, he is treated as a madman and imprisoned by the local Englishmen who find him. Conrad draws upon his Polish heritage to provide a convincing story of the difficulties arising from acclimating oneself to a foreign land.
The other two stories are Falk: A Reminiscence and To-Morrow. More Details
