Description

A RARE COPY IN JACKET OF ORWELL'S FAMOUS ACCOUNT OF NORTHERN WORKING CLASS LIFE AND COALMINING. The publisher was initially unhappy with the second half of the book, where Orwell announced both his adherence to socialism and his dislike of socialist intellectuals and their admiration for Soviet power. This first regular edition, published on 8 March 1937, was preceded by the Left Book Club edition issued by Gollancz a few weeks before, issued in limp orange cloth.
