1984 (First Edition in Russian Language)
Possev, Frankfurt am Main 1957 - George Orwell, 1984. Possev. Frankfurt am Main, 1957. 196 P. 24 cm. Russian edition. Translated by V. Andreeva and N. Vitova. Dzordz Orvell, 1984, Possev, Frankfurt/main, 1957. Perevod s anglijskogo V. Andreeva i N. Vitova FIRST EDITION IN RUSSIAN LANGUAGE Wladimir Gorachek, Russian refugee in Germany, was publishing in Frankfurt Possev, a political and social review linked to the NTS (Narodno-Trudovoy Soyuz, the National Alliance of Russian Solidarists). In July 1949, Gorachek wrote a letter to Orwell asking him the authorization to publish a translation of Animal Farm. Translation was yet made by Gleb Struve, known by Orwell because he was the man who introduced him after the World War II to the futurist novel We published by Yevgeny Zamyatin in 1922, considered as seminal of 1984. Gorachek intended to get a few thousand copies through the Iron Curtain. Orwell agreed rapidly, refusing by advance all royalties. Book was published in 1950 (Skotsky Khutor. Possev. 1950. Translated by Mariya Kriges and Gleb Struve). There are few and very elusive descriptions of this rare edition of 1984. Context in which were made translations of Orwell destined to peoples behind the Iron Curtain is not so simple. As Struve wrote in his necrology for Orwell in 1950, a large part of the publication of a 1947 translation in Ukrainian of Animal Farm was confiscated by American authorities and handed over to the Soviets. Even if NTS was less controversial for western authorities than the Ukrainian revolutionaries turned as activists against Stalin, who wanted to publish Animal Farm, and than Orwell himself, it doesn't seem that West favored Orwell translations for eastern peoples during early post war years. That¿s why Orwell not only agreed free but also gave some money for those publications witch are rare items during the post war years. Black and white cover. Title in white on spine and first cover.
