This is an analysis of a collection of over fifty Conrad contracts from the office of Conrad's agent, J.B. Pinker. They relate to dramatisations of Conrad's works, republications of works, and translations of Conrad's works. In each case, the contract has been contextualised by reference to the subsequent performance history in relation to dramatisations, publication history of republished work, and publication and reception history in relation to translations. The essay adds another piece to the publication and reception history o Conrad's works.
