Blue w/gilt lettering. Minor wear head and heel of spine, tips of corners rubbed. Foxing to endpapers, text is otherwise clean and bright, no marks. Clipped DJ is missing pieces of spine, front flap separated, still looks surprisingly nice in Brodart cover. Translated by Dorothy Bussy, the author's old and trusted friend. An acknowledged masterpiece of French prose style, it is unique, unrivaled as an uninhibited autobiography. It is more outspokenly self-revelatory than the famous JOURNAL, kept so scrupulously until Gide's dying day, and displays an honesty uncommon in the or any other age. Here it is, within the reach of all lovers of personal records: records of childhood doubts and disturbances, the influences that early wakened Gide's individualism, written in measures of almost musical cadence; reminiscences the more honest for being the work of so meticulous an observer and stylist. He tells of Stephane Mallarme's salon, of his early friendship with Pierre Louys and others, of his meeting in North Africa with Oscar Wilde and Lord Alfred Douglas, and closes on the eve of his marriage." by the winner of the 1947 Nobel Prize.
