Dear Friends of Swan's Fine Books: Please note that we will be CLOSED between February 1 and February 15th, in order to attend the two book fairs being held here in California! If your schedule allows, please visit us at Rare Books San Francisco (Feb. 3-5) or in Pasadena (Feb. 10-12). Details on both of these fairs can be found on our "Events" tab. We will resume our usual business hours on Thursday, February 16th.
Joseph Conrad was a literary lion who wrote dozens of novels, short stories, plays, and nonfiction.
Please join us on Thursday evening, August 7th, for an informal discussion about Joseph Conrad's fascinating life, an overview of his books and his writing style, and collecting his first editions.There is no "requirement" to have read Conrad's books. Hopefully, our discussion of his life and works will inspire you to take on a Conrad story you always meant to read.Leading the discussion will be Tim Peck, a Conrad enthusiast who has read books written by Joseph Conrad, books about Joseph Conrad and who also collects Conrad first editions.
I'd like to be notified of new arrivals in the following categories.
