About This Item

Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, San Diego, NY & M&S Press, London, 1984. 1st edition. hardcover. Fine/Fine . "Written in 1948, '1984' was George Orwel's chilling prophecy about the future... Orwell's narrative is timelier than ever. '1984' presents a startling and haunting vision of the world, so powerful that it is completely convincing from start to finish. No one can deny the power of this novel, its hold on the imaginations of multiple generations of readers, or the resiliency of its admonitions - a legacy that seems only to grow with the passage of time." [Pub. Info] "1984" was on the forbidden list in the Eastern Block. It became the source of new words: "Orwellian" and "Big Brother." Preface by Daniel C. Siegel. Larger format book. [Please check shipping cost for larger format books and multi-volume sets.] There is a protective mylar cover. 1ST US EDITION.
