Lord of the Flies

By Golding, William




  Even though Lord of the Flies is a frequent submission on any banned books list, many high school students are first introduced to this classic piece of literature in their freshman English class. Using very young protagonists set in a harsh, wild environment, author William Golding's disturbing and engaging novel addresses the themes of human nature and personal welfare, often resulting in violence and murder. Despite its controversial subject matter, it is often considered one of the best novels of the 20th Century.

Lord of the Flies
turned Golding into a household name, and although Lord of the Flies was his most popular book, he remained a successful author long after its publication. In fact, Golding was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1983, where he remarked that he sought to “...illuminate the human condition in the world of today” through his novels.

Published in 1954 in London by Faber and Faber, Lord of the Flies has sold over millions of copies worldwide. It has been translated into many languages, including Basque and Catalan. Evidently, even though the book focuses on the trials and tribulations of twelve young boys, the themes and archetypes resonate with all readers. 


First edition identification and notes

 First printings of the book feature the iconic jungle theme artwork on the dust jacket. Careful observers will note that the stick figures of the boys blend almost seamlessly into the wild and untamed environment around them, which was undoubtedly a very specific choice by the artist. Because of Golding's fame and influence as a writer, signed first printings are of Lord of the Flies are quite valuable, sometimes pricing as high as $30,000.

Lord of the Flies - E M Forster's Copy

Golding, William

London: Faber, 1954. A first edition, first printing published by Faber in 1954. A fine book with just a little toning to the pages. White titles on red cloth very clear and bright. No inscriptions. In a very good clipped wrapper with some light internal reinforcement to the spine. Spine browned, with a little wear to the extremities. Accompanied by the rare wrap-around band. In a custom-made clamshell box with titles. E. M Forster's own copy, with his book label. Much of Forster's library was sold when the author moved from his family home at West Hackhurst in Abinger Hammer, Surrey in 1946. After taking residence in Kings College Cambridge (with a much reduced library), he continued to give books away as he acquired new ones. Most of his final was sold in 1971 by Heffer and Sons. There were many first edition copies in this, but not this particular copy. Forster was pivotal to the success of 'Lord of the Flies', talking Faber into taking on the unknown writer. It was slow to sell, but with Forster's naming it 'outstanding novel of the year', the book has since gone on to sell over 10 million copies worldwide. Faber produced the E. M. Forster's choice band after the first copies had sold out (before being reprinted). Such band are scarce now and not mentioned in the bibliography. Scarce with these attributes

Considerably less common that its British counterpart; when Lord of the Flies was first published in the U.S. in 1955, it sold only 2,383 copies before quickly going out of print. By the numbers, fewer copies of the American edition were produced and survived than the British, which was published at 3,040 copies. Golding's best-known and most controversial novel. Lord of Flies is ranked #41 on the Modern Library's list of 100 Best Novels, and is the basis for both the 1963 Peter Brook film (terrific) and the 1990 film directed by Harry Hook (ghastly). Though it remains one of the most challenged books by the American Library Association year after year, it is likely to be required reading in schools for the forseeable future.

Lord of the Flies

Golding, William

New York: Coward-McCann, 1962. The dustjacket rightly calls this a "Modern Classic" - one of the great dystopian novels of the mid-Twentieth Century. Originally published in 1955. This is a Very Good copy of the Second Impression (stated "The 1962 Edition" and "Second Impression - September 7. 1962"). White cloth binding, with spine lettering/decoration and front cover decoration in black and red. Clean text; 243 pages, with a two-page biography of the author in the rear. The Introduction is by E.M. Forster. The dustjacket, a rather famous design by George Salter, is unclipped; the spine is darkened, with some sunning at the margins; chips at the head and foot of the spine. In an archival plastic protector. A respectable copy, and much less of a financial hurdle than the First Printing. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. Second Printing.. Hard Cover.
