The Confessions of a Young Man (first published in French in 1886 and English in 1888) is a memoir by Irish novelist George Moore who spent about 15 years in his teens and 20s in Paris and later London as a struggling artist. The book is notable as being one of the first English writings which named important emerging French Impressionists; for its literary criticism; and depictions of bohemian life in Paris during the 1870s and 1880s. Although it is presented as a novel, it is heavily autobiographical, with the hero Dayne being Moore.

Condition

A rare early English edition, and in good condition. The green cloth is lightly marked and rubbed, the pages have sporadic and light foxing. The inner binding is holding but a little dry and pulled in places. Hinges secure. The frontispiece portrait has some offsetting to the tissue guard.
