First edition, first impression, one of 1,000 copies printed. Orwell may well have been the finest essayist England produced in the entire century. Despite his radical credo in his essays he remains the last of the great Victorian prose stylists. Besides the title essay, this book prints his notable studies of Charles Dickens and boy’s weeklies. A scarce book in any condition – copies as nice as this are rare.

Octavo. Original black cloth, titles to spine gilt. With the dust jacket. Housed in a quarter morocco green solander box by the Chelsea Bindery. Pages very lightly tanned as usual, attractive bookplate to the front pastedown, but an exceptionally nice copy in the lightly marked and somewhat faded dust jacket.
