Alfred Street Press is the publishing arm of Ian Burnet Books and was established to publish the book Joseph Conrad’s EASTERN VOYAGES – Tales of Singapore and an East Borneo River.
This book tells the story of Joseph Conrad’s life at sea on the classic three-masted, square-rigged sailing ships before they were ultimately replaced by steamships. Joseph Conrad’s first books – Almayer’s Folly, An Outcast of the Islands, Lord Jim and The Rescue were all set in East Borneo and this book describes how these first books are related to the people he met and his own experiences as first mate on a trading vessel based out of Singapore.
