Nineteen Eighty-Four A Novel - ORWELL, George - 1949. 
London: Secker & Warburg,, 1949. Octavo. Original green cloth, spine lettered in red, top edge red. With the green dust jacket. Spine cocked and very faintly faded at ends, bookseller's ticket at foot of front pastedown, an excellent copy in the price-clipped jacket with a few nicks and short tears, reinforced with tape on verso in three places, but bright and unfaded. First edition, first impression. Copies of the first impression were issued either in green or dark red dust jackets. To judge from surviving examples, this was done in proportions of about two green to one red, but there is no priority between them.
[Bookseller: Peter Harrington]
