Description:
8 Nov 1934 - 22 July 1983. Orwell's first novel takes form Victor Gollancz's archived correspondence regarding the publication of George Orwell's first novel, A Clergyman's Daughter, including the original contract for the novel. Present are two typed letters, two autograph letters, and two autograph postcards, all signed by Orwell; all such material is uncommon in the market.Orwell began to write the novel in January 1934. It was not a book that gave him satisfaction, and his letters over the next few months show his disillusionment with his own writing. He later told Henry Miller "that book is bollox, but I made some experiments in it that were useful to me" (cited in Fenwick, Orwell Bibliography, p. 31), and asked for it to not be reprinted after his death, apart from cheap editions to make a few pounds for his heirs. Though today the novel is probably the least-read of Orwell's major books, it is also his most experimental novel, influenced by modernist trends (Orwell read James Joyce's Ulysses… Read More

Description:
16 Jan 1936-23 June 1944. Orwell's second novel takes form Victor Gollancz's archived correspondence regarding the publication of George Orwell's second novel, Keep the Aspidistra Flying. The correspondence, often bitter, shows how far concerns with libel altered the final text of the novel, and how unhappy Orwell was about this; it contains two typed letters, two autograph notes, and one full autograph letter, all signed by Orwell, in around four hundred words in his hand.Soon after completing A Clergyman's Daughter, Orwell moved to London, and took a part-time job in a bookshop in Hampstead. By February 1935 he had begun to write Keep the Aspidistra Flying, incorporating his experiences as a bookseller - the career shared by the protagonist Gordon Comstock - and his experience of poverty. Orwell sent the manuscript to Gollancz in January 1936. The archive opens with a carbon copy of a letter from Gollancz to his solicitor Harold Rubinstein, 16 January 1936, enclosing the manuscript (the manuscript… Read More

Description:
New York: Harper & Brothers, 1934. Burmese Days was several years in the writing. Orwell was drafting it in Paris during the time he spent there from 1928 to 1929. He was still working on it in 1932 at Southwold while doing up the family home in the summer holidays. By December 1933 he had typed the final version, and in 1934 he delivered it to his agent Leonard Moore for publication by Victor Gollancz, who had published his previous book. Gollancz, smarting from fears of prosecution from another author's work, turned it down because he was worried about charges of libel. Heinemann and Cape turned it down for the same reasons. After demanding alterations, Harpers were prepared to publish it in the United States, where it made its debut in 1934. In the spring of 1935, Gollancz declared that he was prepared to publish Burmese Days provided that Orwell was able to demonstrate it was not based on real people. Extensive checks were made in colonial lists that no British individuals could be confused… Read More

Description:
29 Oct 1936-27 Aug 1958. Orwell's classic study of Northern England poverty takes form Victor Gollancz's archived correspondence regarding the publication of George Orwell's The Road to Wigan Pier, including the original contract for the work. Orwell's classic study of industrial poverty in the north of England remains in print today, and is among the most esteemed and best-known of his non-fiction books.After Orwell finished Keep the Aspidistra Flying in January 1936, Gollancz - a prominent left-wing publishing house - commissioned him to write a book about the condition of the working class and the unemployed in the north of England, and offered him a £500 advance. Orwell spent the next few months in the region, writing a diary which formed the basis of the book, and worked on it for the rest of the year. The archive of correspondence opens in late October 1936, with Gollancz asking Orwell's literary agent Leonard Moore how the book is coming along. Moore replies that the book is expected in… Read More

Description:
1 Jan 1940 - 13 Oct 1966. Orwell's first collection of essays takes form Victor Gollancz's archived correspondence relating to their publication of George Orwell's first collection of essays, Inside the Whale, including the original contract. Orwell began work on the essays in May 1939. The outbreak of the war led to an unproductive period, but by mid-December he had finished the book and sent the manuscript to Gollancz. Orwell uses a commentary on Henry Miller's Tropic of Cancer to discourse more widely on English literature over the last two decades. The archive opens with a carbon copy of a letter from Gollancz to Orwell dated 1 January 1940, telling him how much he enjoyed reading the manuscript, and that he was in complete sympathy with the general political point of view, even though he disagrees with the pessimism. He asks Orwell to lend him his copy of Tropic of Cancer, a novel he had not heard of before. Orwell responds in a typed letter signed "Eric Blair" (his actual name) on 8 January… Read More

Description:
London: Victor Gollancz Ltd, 1940. Cloth. Very Good. SIGNED BY GEORGE ORWELL on the front free endpaper. A solid copy to boot of the 1940 true 1st edition of this uncommon collection of Orwell essays (consisting of 3 lengthy pieces --"Charles Dickens", "Boys' Weeklies" and "Inside the Whale"). Tight and VG in its dark cloth, with rubbing to the spine lettering, light spotting --and a bit of minor staining-- at the panels and just a touch of foxing to the endsheets. Orwell's signature of course is legendarily elusive and, given his relatively short life (1903-1950) and the major impact his career had in the world of 20th century literature, is extremely sought-after. Only a very small handful of 20th century authors command comparable respect in the rare book world.

Description:
Easton Press USA, 2017 Pardon the paraphrase but while all books are equal, some are more equal than others. This is most definitely one such; perhaps the only limited edition ever issued of Orwell s great parable of the Totalitarian State. The paintings are by Bill Mayer, and he has signed and numbered the edition. It is a typical small press production. The gorgeous acid free paper is specially made for the Easton Press. The signatures are sewn, not glued. The text block edges are gilt. The binding is full leather. This magnificent edition will last hundreds of years. The allegorical masterpiece of power and corruption is now available in a signed and numbered Limited Edition of just 1,200 copies. Personally signed by artist Bill Mayer, who has created 10 paintings - it is an injustice to just call them illustrations - each of which is tipped in and then protected by a translucent page. All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others. Orwell s brilliant allegory of the rise… Read More
