I was very pleased with the good condition of the book, as it was used. I heartily recommend fans of Conrad to read his Captain Tom Lingard trilogy: Almayer's Folly, An Outcast Of The Islands and The Rescue for a truly beautiful and rewarding reading experience. Format: Mass Market Paperback. Nothing is really going to rescue The Rescue from being overwrought tosh.
Modern Classics Rescue: A Romance Of The Shallows (Penguin Modern Classics) Mass Market Paperback. The Rescue is also Conrad's most overt expression of class consciousness, of his fierce disdain for and resentment of the upper classes, the 'better' people, typified by the insufferable narcissist Mr. Travers.

Of the three long novels of mine which suffered an interruption, "TheRescue" was the one that had to wait the longest for the good pleasureof the Fates. I am betraying no secret when I state here that it hadto wait precisely for twenty years. I laid it aside at the end of thesummer of 1898 and it was about the end of the summer of 1918 that Itook it up again with the firm determination to see the end of it andhelped by the sudden feeling that I might be equal to the task.
And that also means constantly redefining and refreshing exactly what makes a ‘classic’. That’s where Modern Classics come in. Since 1961 they have been an organic, ever-growing and ever-evolving list of books that we believe will continue to be read over and over again. They will be summarily deleted.

Publisher: Penguin Classics, 1996. Joseph Conrad (originally Józef Teodor Konrad Nalecz Korzeniowski) was born in the Ukraine in 1857 and grew up under Tsarist autocracy. His parents, ardent Polish patriots, died when he was a child, following their exile for anti-Russian activities, and he came under the protection of his tradition-conscious uncle, Thaddeus Bobrowski, who watched over him for the next twenty-five years.
A romance of the shallows. A comparison of any page of"The Rescue" with any page of "The Nigger" will furnish an oculardemonstration of the nature and the inward meaning of this first crisisof my writing life. For it was a crisis undoubtedly. Allas!' quod she, 'that ever this sholde happe! For wende I never,by possibilitee, That swich a monstre or merveille mighte be!'-THEFRANKELEYN'S TALE. The laying aside ofa work so far advanced was a very awful decision to take.
