This is an auction for THE CONFESSIONS OF JEAN-JACQUES ROUSSEAU.

From Wikipedia:

“CONFESSIONS is an autobiographical book by Jean-Jacques Rousseau. Covering the first 53 years of Rousseau's life, up to 1765, it was completed in 1769, but not published until 1782, four years after Rousseau's death. CONFESSIONS were two distinct works, each part consisting of six books. Rousseau alludes to a planned third part, but this was never completed. Rousseau provides an account of the experiences that shaped his influential philosophy. For instance, the parts of his own education he liked best are clearly present in his account of ideal education, Emile: Or, On Education. The Confessions was one of the first autobiographies in which an individual wrote of his own life mainly in terms of his worldly experiences and personal feelings. The CONFESSIONS is also noted for its detailed account of Rousseau's more humiliating and shameful moments. For instance, Rousseau recounts an incident when, while a servant, he covered up his theft of a ribbon by framing a young girl - who was working in the house - for the crime. In addition, Rousseau explains the manner in which he disposes of the five illegitimate children he had with Thérèse Levasseur . . . ”
