Contents: Heart of darkness -- Youth -- The end of the tether.

Designed to appeal to the booklover, the Macmillan Collector's Library is a series of beautiful gift editions of much loved classic titles.

Macmillan Collector's Library are books to love and treasure.

This elegant edition features an afterword by Dr Keith Carabine, specialist in American literature and former chair of the Joseph Conrad society. One night on the Thames, Charles Marlowe tells his fellow sailors the vivid and brutal tale of his time as a riverboat captain in the Belgian Congo.

From the mists of London we are whisked to the darkness of Africa's colonial heart - and into the thrall of the tyrannical Kurtz, an ivory trader who has established himself as a terrifying demi-god. Sinister and incisive, Heart of Darkness by Joseph Conrad has retained the fascination of readers and scholars alike.

It is accompanied here by the stories with which it has been published since 1902: the autobiographical Youth, and the tale of an old man's fall from fortune, The End of the Tether.
