Catalogue Note

The Mirror of the Sea is Conrad's only book devoted solely to the sea, as well as his first volume of autobiography, collecting together a number of essays on sea life. T.E. Lawrence proclaimed it Conrad's best book, and, while other writers have not entirely concurred, there is a strong argument that it is his most central.
