Orwell, George
Coming Up For Air
London Victor Gollancz Ltd 1939. Second edition or impression, depending upon whether you are looking at the dust jacket or the copyright page, published in June 1939. The book is firmly bound in slightly marked and faded blue cloth lettered in darker blue to the spine, the extremities are bumped and rubbed. The text block is age browned and dusty with some staining and minor marks, there is an ownership inscription to the front endpaper. The dust jacket is the original, it was fragmentary and has been professionally conserved with tissue, it is age toned and grubby, the spine is browned and there are several areas of loss. A novel that perfectly captures the sense of pre-war melancholy and the looming certainty of loss and disaster. [Attributes: In Dust Jacket]
Bookseller: Jonathan Frost Rare Books Limited [Liverpool, United Kingdom]
