I do have my own confession to make: I did not buy this book because of the text, but because of the beautiful wood engravings featured inside its pages.
Confessions of an English Opium Eater by Thomas De Quincey is an iconic book first published in 1821.
The text for this 1948 copy is the 1856 edition of the book, and is the first impression of this version published by the Folio Society.
The illustrations are wood engravings by Suffolk artist Blair Hughes-Stanton.
I think therefore I write.
