NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR. [Two copies of the First Canadian Edition In the Red & Blue Dustwrappers]
London / Toronto: Secker & Warburg / S.J. Reginald Saunders, 1949 Orwell, George (Pseudonym of Eric Blair). NINETEEN EIGHTY-FOUR. [Two copies of the First Canadian Edition In the Red & Blue Dustwrappers]. London: Secker & Warburg / Toronto: S.J. Reginald Saunders, 1949. First Canadian editions [both publishers names present]. 8vo., 314pp. The first copy in the red dustwrapper is a beautiful fine unblemished example; the second copy in the blue dustwrapper is also fine, the dustwrapper near fine with a slight toning to the spine panel. Neat ownership signature of Cyril James, [Manchester Regiment], principal of McGill University from 1939 to 1962. Both dustwrappers are unclipped with the original $3.00 price on the front flap. The first Canadian edition is a bit of an oddity as it was issued by the Book Club & correctly has the black dot on the rear board. A lovely pair of this modern highspot. A Modern Movement, Connolly 100 title & a Burgess 99 selection - one of only three titles on both lists. An unusually nice pair.. First Edition.
