Nineteen Eighty-Four. A Novel.New York: Harcourt, Brace and Company, 1949 Stock Code: 87502
NotesFirst US edition, first printing, originally published in the UK in the same year. Two versions of the dust jacket were issued, one blue and one red, but there is no priority between them. However, the red jackets are far more susceptible to fading, so surviving copies of the red jacket in nice condition are uncommon.
Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles to spine and front board in red and black. With the red dust jacket. Housed in a white and light brown cloth slipcase.
Cloth very lightly rubbed at ends of spine, small spot to tail of spine, contents faintly toned. An excellent copy in the fresh jacket that is very lightly rubbed at the extremities with slightly toned spine panel.
