Coming Up for Air

ORWELL, George

ORWELL, George Coming Up for Air

Gollancz, 1939.

First edition. Original blue cloth in the yellow dustwrapper printed in black and magenta. A near fine copy with a little foxing to the fore edge, in a superb near fine dustwrapper with the publisher's rubber stamp to the upper cover and a modicum of toning to the spine, but an exceptionally bright, crisp copy.

Orwell's great novel of the Thames Valley, inspired largely by his childhood growing up in and around Henley-on-Thames. With an original print-run of only 2,000 copies, examples are now scarce, exceptionally so with the dustwrapper.

PROVENANCE: The Gollancz archive, stamped "FILE COPY" to the upper panel and to front free endpaper, with relevant pencil notation to the front free endpaper.
