Notes

First edition, first impression, in the very rare dust jacket, this being the most complete and only unrestored example we have handled. This was Orwell's third book and his second novel, into which he injected "some experimental writing possibly in the manner of James Joyce's Ulysses" (Colls). Orwell was later dissatisfied with the book; he wrote to Henry Miller in August the next year saying "that book is bollox, but I made some experiments in it that were useful to me". The first edition was 4,000 copies.
