About This Item

Stated First US Edition/First Printing in a first state red jacket; A Very Good book in a Very Good dust jacket. An outstanding copy of this seminal work of 20th Century Literature, a landmark of political and dystopian fiction, and named one of the great novels of the century. This copy is in very good condition with a square, tight binding, bright spine lettering, and clean pages throughout; the book does show some mild rubbing to the board edges, light age-toning to the boards, and some light soiling to the exterior text block and free papers, else near fine or better. Housed in a sharp and bright very good dust jacket that shows some mild rubbing and creasing to the edges, moderate fading to the spine (common for the title), and some light foxing to the flap edges. Overall, a highly presentable and collectible copy of this important work of 20th Century Literature; Not remaindered, not price clipped ($3.00 intact), not ex-library; in a protective Mylar cover and will ship in a sturdy box.
