Nineteen Eighty-Four.
London: Secker & Warburg, 1949. First edition of Orwell's classic dystopian novel. Octavo, original cloth. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing and wear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell and chemise case. A superior example. Written while Orwell suffered severely from tuberculosis and published shortly before the disease claimed his life, the novel is a work "of hectic, devilish, claustrophobic intensity... nightmarish in the telling" (Clute & Nicholls, 896). In 2005, the novel was chosen by Time Magazine as one of the 100 best English-language novels from 1923 to 2005. Named as one of Modern Library 100 Best Novels of the twentieth century. "It is quite simply a novel which has changed the world" (Pringle, 100 Best Science Fiction Novels 1). Fenwick A12a. Connolly 99. Anatomy of Wonder II:838. 100 Most Influential Books 93.
