We - Zamyatin, Yevgeny - 1970. 
Jonathan Cape 1970 - The First UK Printing published by Jonathan Cape in 1970. The Book is remarkably in Fine condition and appears unread. Free from inscriptions, erasures and markings. Grey top-stain unfaded. The Wrapper is complete and also is in Fine condition. The Stanley Chapman designed wrapper looks very striking in the removable Brodart archival cover. A very sharp copy. Translated by Bernard Guilbert Guerney with an introduction and Bibliographical note by Michael Glenny. 'Over a half-century since its appearance, the novel WE remains one of the most exciting and influential works of science fiction. Its basic plot, whereby a true believer comes to question the validity of a totalitarian state and thus to transform it from a utopia into an anti-utopia, has been repeated by Aldous Huxley in BRAVE NEW WORLD (1932), George Orwell in NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR (1949) and by any number of epigones; yet its artistry, prophetic power, and underlying philosophy have not been surpassed.' - Survey of Science Fiction Literature V, pp. 2433-41.
