London: Secker and Warburg, 1945. A first edition, first printing published by Secker and Warburg in 1945. A very good book with inscriptions. Some mottling to the front and rear boards - contents are clean. Slight cracking at hinges as is common. In a very good (or better) clipped dust wrapper with Searchlight Books advertisement printed in blue to the verso. Some abrasions here and there to the hinges and upper panel fore-edge, though less rubbing to the spine panel than is often seen. Some shallow chipping to the spine ends and corners with some internal neat tape reinforcement to spine and hinges. A very good copy without restoration - first editions of this title are genuinely thin on the ground at present.

Description:
[United States], 1846. No Binding. Near Fine. [64.5cm x 44.3cm; 25.5" x 17.5"]. Large broadside. Minor offset toning. A well-preserved example. Rare, boldly printed broadside announcing the early exhibition of one of the most famous discoveries in the history of American paleontology, that of the 'Warren Mastodon,' excavated in 1845 from a peat bog near Newburgh, New York, and since 1906 on display at the Museum of Natural History. The animal, which perished some 11,000 years ago, was an immediate sensation owing to its bones' near complete state of preservation and its status as the largest extinct species yet discovered in America (the first American dinosaur, a Hadrosaurus, was identified in Haddonfield, New Jersey, in 1858). Found on the farm of Nathaniel Brewster, the mastodon skeleton toured New England until it came to the attention of the surgeon Dr. John Collins Warren, who quickly purchased the beast, wrote a monograph about it (The Mastodon Giganteus of North America, Boston, John… Read More

First translation of the novel from English with special foreword by G. Orwell. Orwell partially paid the costs of printing.
One of the rarest and important edition published in DP camp.
Initially Orwell planned the novel as satire on English society. Further the novel began to be considered as satire on Stalin society. In the title of the book the translator consciously used the word "колгосп" (collective farm) and referring the reader directly to the Soviet system.
The important part of the foreword by G. Orwell is naming of the repression in USSR in 30s as a Great Purges: "In 1936 I got married. In almost the same week the civil war broke out in Spain. My wife and I both wanted to go to Spain and fight for the Spanish Government. … In… Read More

Description:
Munich: Vidavnitstvi Prometei, 1947. The first appearance in print of Orwell's preface First Ukrainian edition, and the first to include a preface by Orwell. A copy of the first English edition of 1945 fell into the hands of Ihor Shevchenko, a son of Polish anti-Bolshevik nationalists, who translated the work into Ukrainian. This edition is scarcely found in such excellent condition."In April 1946, Shevchenko wrote to Orwell, a mourning widower and single parent of adopted baby at that time, requesting authorization to publish his Ukrainian translation. He described to him how he had translated the book out loud to a transfixed audience of Ukrainian DPs [displaced persons] and they had always been puzzled how the West could be so naïve about the Soviet Union and wondered if anyone 'knew the truth'. He concluded: 'Your book has solved that problem... Refugees reacted to the underlying values of the book, to the tale 'types,' to the underlying convictions of the author and so on. Besides, the mood of… Read More

Fenwick (A.10.M1) mentions, in passing, the strip cartoon version serialized by British and American newspapers but not this publication. Shortly after Orwell's death, his widow Sonia was visited in London by representatives of the American producer Louis de Rochemont, seeking movie rights to Orwell's novel. A conventional live-action adaptation was out of the question, of course, given that the book's main characters were farmyard animals, so De Rochemont hired the British husband-and-wife animators John Halas and Joy Batchelor, who had produced propaganda films during the Second World War. Their adaptation of Animal Farm was… Read More
