The true first edition of Orwell's first published novel, preceding the British edition by a year. Set in Burma during the waning years of the British Empire, the novel stands as a 'portrait of the dark side of the British Raj'.
Spine very slightly faded, some trivial wear to extremities, notwithstanding a very good copy indeed.
