The Confessions of St Augustine.

£9.99

Product description

The Confessions of St Augustine is an autobiographical work originally written in Latin between AD 397 and 400, and is devoted to a thoughtful analysis of the author's own emotional experiences as a sinful youth, and his conversion to Christianity. The translation is by J. G. Pilkington and the volume is illustrated with colour paintings by Edy Legrand.

The book is one of "The 100 Greatest Books Ever Written", a series published by The Easton Press. The volume is attractively bound in dark red leather on heavy duty boards with raised spine bands; it has a gilt stamped design on the front, back and spine, gilded text block edges, a sewn binding, copper-coloured moiré fabric end sheets, a matching silk reading ribbon, and is printed on acid-neutral paper.

There is a light water-stain on the leading edge of the first 11 leaves, and these and a number of subsequent pages are very slightly cockled as a result of dampness. Otherwise the contents are crisp, clean and bright.
