ORWELL, George
Homage to Catalonia
Secker & Warburg, 1938. 1st edition. Hardcover. Near fine original green cloth, good gilt spine lettering, square binding, nice clean pages, a little spotting on the first and last couple of leaves, endpapers a little browned. Orwell's third book of non-fiction, in which he recounts his experiences in the Spanish Civil,War, after joining the militia to fight Fascism. But he came to detest the factionalism he found within this circle and his book was very critical of the communists in Spain, which led to Gollancz, his publisher hitherto, turning the book down and Martin Warburg agreeing to publish it. Overall, a very good copy indeed of this classic, from a 1500-copy printing..
