Confessions of an English Opium-Eater


2nd U.S. Edition

Green #360

American Imprints 41-1544

In this remarkable autobiography, Thomas De Quincey hauntingly describes the surreal visions and hallucinatory nocturnal wanderings he took through London—and the nightmares, despair, and paranoia to which he became prey—under the influence of the then-legal painkiller laudanum. Forging a link between artistic self-expression and addiction, Confessions seamlessly weaves the effects of drugs and the nature of dreams, memory, and imagination. First published in 1821, it paved the way for later generations of literary drug users, from Baudelaire to Burroughs, and anticipated psychoanalysis with its insights into the subconscious.

Binding is tight, boards, endboard is split but all there and still attached. Some minor foxing. Water stain on last few pages. No loose pages. Condition would be GOOD

Very Rare.
