Coming Up for Air

Orwell, George


1st Edition

First thus: first printing of the Secker & Warburg uniform edition. (Originally published by Gollancz in 1939.) Publisher’s original green cloth with red lettering to spine. Red top stain. Cloth faded and with some light foxing. Foxing to endpapers and last few leaves, as well as very light foxing to edges of text block. Contemporary bookseller’s sticker to front paste-down. In good only dust jacket, price-clipped and with some chips and tears to edges with some loss to spine ends. A very good copy of this collectible early edition of Orwell’s 1939 novel.
