About This Item

A First Edition of "Nineteen Eighty-Four" by George Orwell. Published by Secker and Warburg in 1949. The book is in Good overall condition. The binding is tight and the book stands upright though it has a moderate shelf lean. The internal pages are all very clean and inscription free. There is a small shop sticker on the inside of the front board. The page edge blocks have tanned and dulled from age. The unclipped dustjacket is also in Good condition. It has had two small areas missing at the top and bottom of the spine which have been neatly camouflaged by the placing of a green heavy duty paper (very similar to the colour of the original jacket) behind the jacket to give the impression of no loss. There are also tiny areas of loss to extremities and light creasing. See scans for details. Further scanned images are available on request. Any questions, please just ask. 312pp.
