with a foreword by Victor Gollancz

ORWELL, George

The first sound in the mornings was the clumping of the mill girls' clogs down the cobbled street.

ORWELL, George The Road to Wigan Pier with a foreword by Victor Gollancz

Gollancz / Left Book Club, 1937.

First edition. Limp orange cloth wrappers lettered in black. Illustrated with photographs. A very good copy in a very good dustwrapper, both with a touch of edge wear.

This copy, which was not for sale to the public, precedes the publisher's trade edition.
"When you see the unemployment figures quoted at two millions, it is fatally easy take this as meaning that two million people are out of work and the rest of the population is comparatively comfortable."
