First Printing, one of 20,000 copies. Octavo; publisher's taupe cloth, with titles stamped in maroon and red on spine and front cover; dustjacket; 314,[2]pp. Fine in a Fine, unclipped example of the red variant dustjacket (priced $3.00), with only a pinpoint rubbed spot and a 4mm tear to crown to note. Vibrant in color, unworn and unfaded, without a trace of the ubiquitous toning to the white portions of the spine - rare thus.


Superlative copy of Orwell's towering work of dystopian fiction, the vocabulary of which has become a part of the fabric of our culture. Basis for two notable film adaptations: Michael Anderson's 1956 film starring Edmund O'Brien, and the Michael Radford's later picture starring John Hurt and Richard Burton. Fenwick A12b; Connolly 100.
