This handsome gift edition presents Joseph Conrad's celebrated work, Heart of Darkness, featuring striking gold-embossed cover designs, gilded page edges and patterned endpapers.

The inspiration behind Apocalypse Now, Heart of Darkness tells the story of Charlie Marlowe, who takes a steamboat on a voyage into the heart of Africa. His mission is to relieve an ivory agent named Kurtz, who has been taken ill at a remote trading station. Marlowe's eyes are opened wide as he witnesses acts of cruelty on his journey and when he meets Kurtz, he is forced to examine his own values and views of humanity. In addition to Heart of Darkness, this volume also includes Tales of Unrest, a series of five short stories in which Conrad explores the nature of the soul and man's psychological malaise.

This elegant pocket-sized gift edition contains the classic and unabridged text, presented with a gold embossed cover design, ivory pages, beautifully designed endpapers and gold gilded page edges. Part of the Arcturus Ornate Classics series, this book makes wonderful gift for any lover of classic fiction.
