3 August marks the anniversary of the death of novelist Joseph Conrad in 1924. Born Józef Teodor Konrad Korzeniowski in Poland in 1857, he travelled widely before arriving in England in 1878 where he worked as a sailor.

His first novel was published in 1895 and many more followed, including Lord Jim (1900), Heart of Darkness (1902), Nostromo (1904), The Secret Agent (1907) and The Rover (1923).

Many more pictures relating to authors and their works can be found at the Look and Learn picture library.
