A Clockwork Orange

By Burgess, Anthony




Anthony Burgess wrote more than 40 novels, but A Clockwork Orange is certainly his most famous. The novel is set in a not-too-distant future English society, namely characterized by a subculture of extreme youth violence. Alex, the unapologetic teenaged protagonist, narrates his exploits and experiences with state authorities intent on reforming him. This narration — in a fictional slang called nadsat — is an experiment in language, combining elements of Russian and Cockney English. In fact, the title of the novel itself is taken from an old Cockney expression: “As queer as a clockwork orange.”

The US edition of the novel was published without the final chapter, in which Alex grows up to renounce violence. Burgess strongly disapproved of the decision, arguing that it distorted the novel into a tale of unredeemable evil — far from the author’s original intention. Ironically, the US edition of A Clockwork Orange became a cult classic and was used by Stanley Kubrick for his 1971 film adaptation.

A Clockwork Orange is ranked 65th on Modern Library’s “100 Best” English-language novels of the 20th century. It is also listed in TIME’s “100 Best Novels” (since 1923).

First edition identification and notes

William Heinemann first published A Clockwork Orange in London in 1962. Barry Trangrove designed the original first edition dust jacket, which has wide flaps and is priced 16s. (The second issue has trimmed flaps and is re-priced 18s). Signed copies of the first edition have sold for upwards of $12,500.

Other collectible or notable editions

W.W. Norton Company, Inc. published the first US edition of A Clockwork Orange — without the final chapter — in New York in 1963. This 184-page edition’s dust jacket states its original price of $3.95 on front flap of jacket. It wasn’t until 1987 that Norton published the “New American Edition,” complete with the final chapter.

In 2012, Norton published a 50th anniversary edition of the novel featuring the original British cover and six of Burgess’s own illustrations.

Burgess, Anthony

London: Heinemann, 1962. First edition of Burgess' landmark novel. Octavo, original black boards, titles to spine in gilt. Association copy, inscribed by the author under his legal name and pen name on the front free endpaper in the year of publication, "To Dr McMichael--a substitute appendix from John B. Wilson "Anthony Burgess" June 1962." The recipient, John McMichael had treated Burgess' wife after a suicide attempt, and the author would later dedicate his 1966 novel Tremor of Intent to him. Near fine in a near fine first issue dust jacket with the wide flaps. Jacket design by Barry Trengrove. Housed in a custom clamshell box. Jacket design by Barry Trengrove. This is the first example we have seen or heard of bearing his real name; an exceptional example. A Clockwork Orange is a nightmare vision of the future told in its own fantastically inventive lexicon, it has since become a classic of modern literature. Roald Dahl hailed it "A terrifying and marvelous book." Inspired in part by an attack on Burgess' pregnant wife, Burgess' most famous novel is a "compelling and often comic vision of the way violence comes to dominate the mind" (Clute & Nicholls, 175). "The most discussed aspect of this book is the slang Burgess created for his teenaged characters. Called 'nadsat,' it combines Cockney slang with Russian... A Clockwork Orange serves as a forum for the discussion of the nature of language and the conflicts between free will and determinism" (New York Public Library, Books of the Century, 164). The cinematic adaptation of Burgess's haunting tale was accidental. Screenplay writer Terry Southern gave Stanley Kubrick a copy of the novel, but, as he was developing a Napoleon Bonaparte-related project, Kubrick put it aside. Soon afterward, however, the Bonaparte project was canceled and, sometime later, Kubrick happened upon the novel. It had an immediate impact. Of his enthusiasm for it, Kubrick said, "I was excited by everything about it: The plot, the ideas, the characters, and, of course, the language. The story functions, of course, on several levels: Political, sociological, philosophical, and, what's most important, on a dreamlike psychological-symbolic level". Kubrick wrote a screenplay faithful to the novel, saying, "I think whatever Burgess had to say about the story was said in the book, but I did invent a few useful narrative ideas and reshape some of the scenes." The film premiered in 1971 starring Malcolm McDowell with a memorable soundtrack composed by Walter Carlos. Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 greatest novels of the twentieth century and by TIME magazine as one of the 100 best English-languange novels since 1923.

BURGESS, ANTHONY

London: Heinemann, 1962. First edition. Original cloth, original dust jacket. Fine/Very Good. FIRST EDITION, FIRST ISSUE of one of the classics of the 20th century. "Like 1984, this is a book in which an entire social order is implied through language. And what language! To hint at the vile universe of the 15-year-old delinquent Alex and his murderous buddies, Burgess created 'nadsat,' a rich futuristic patois. 'Sinny' for 'cinema.' 'Viddy' for 'see,' 'horrorshow' for 'good' - from the Russian, khorosho, which gives you some idea of which political system has prevailed. The words locate him in a world of corrupted values, violence and boundless infantile indulgence. (His drug is 'milk plus.') When Alex is apprehended by the authorities and subjected to psychological conditioning to make him nauseated at any impulse towards violence, Burgess's book becomes a meditation on whether a world in which evil can be freely chosen might still be preferable to one in which goodness is compelled. Stanley Kubrick's coldly magnificent 'sinny' adaptation has sometimes threatened to overshadow this great novel. Don't let it happen" (Richard Lacayo, All-Time 100 Novels). The basis for the classic 1971 Stanley Kubrick film and with a final chapter that was omitted from US editions until 1986. First Issue: with black cloth binding and dust jacket with "16S NET" price and wider flaps. London: Heinemann, 1962. Octavo, original black cloth, original pictorial dust jacket by Barry Trengrove. Small ownership signature on front free endpaper. Book fine; dust jacket with mild fading to spine (as often), nearly invisible repaired closed tear near base of spine. An excellent copy of one of the most influential novels of the century.

1962. London: Heinemann, 1962. 8vo, black cloth lettered in gilt to spine; original pink pictorial dust-wrapper designed by Barry Trengrove; pp. [x], 196, [ii]; pages very lightly tanned to edges, with very light spotting to upper edge; wrapper with very light fading to spine; some very small nicks, and one approximately 0.5cm long to rear of wrapper; price clipped to inner flap; previous owner's sticker to ff end paper; an extremely good original copy, rare in such good condition. First edition, first issue binding of black cloth with wide flaps to dust wrapper. The second issue was bound in blue. A Clockwork Orange is part black humour, part psychological comment on violence and its dominance over the mind. Written in just three weeks, it was inspired, in part, by an attack on Burgess’ pregnant wife, and is famous for its violent scenes, as well as its use of ‘nadsat’ – a combination of cockney slang with Russian. The book was banned in numerous US schools for its sexual violence, however it was the film adaptation which caused more of an uproar. The cinematic adaptation of Burgess's moral tale was accidental. Screenplay writer Terry Southern gave Stanley Kubrick a copy of the novel, but, as he was developing a Napoleon Bonaparte-related project, Kubrick put it aside. Soon afterwards, however, the Bonaparte project was cancelled and Kubrick happened upon the novel. It had an immediate impact. Of his enthusiasm for it, Kubrick said, "I was excited by everything about it: The plot, the ideas, the characters, and, of course, the language.”(New York Times).Kubrick wrote a screenplay faithful to the novel, saying, "I think whatever Burgess had to say about the story was said in the book, but I did invent a few useful narrative ideas and reshaped some of the scenes." The film premiered in 1971 starring Malcolm McDowell, with a memorable soundtrack composed by Walter Carlos. Due to it's graphic content, it was immediately banned in both South Africa and Brazil, with the Argentinian authorities asking for cuts before it could be aired. Interestingly, the film adaptation of this controversial novel with withdrawn in Britain by Kubrick himself. The self-imposed ban was in place until the producer's death in 1999, and despite numerous copies of the VHS being smuggled across the channel, the film was not screened in UK cinemas until its re-release in 2000. A very bright, fresh copy of the author's most famous book.

Wrapped in removable mylar. A shade of fading on the spine edge, rubbed on the back panel (seemingly where a retangular sticker once was), and with four ghost marks from tape on the flaps. A square and sound copy with the black boards free of wear and still with bright gold lettering. No foxing to the pages. The ghost marks from the tape appear on the end papes as well. There is also some heavy erasing to the back end page the lead to some rubbing -- possibly from a restoration. Putting it all together this may have been a library copy, although there aren't any stamps that indicate it as such. I've done my best to photograph all of the wear so you'll see that if this were a library copy, it's one that (1) was poorly marked, and (2) hardly circulated.
