How it works


ANIMAL FARM. A fairy story.


Secker & Warburg. London. 1945.

FIRST EDITION. 1st impression. 8vo.

A near to very good copy of the book with the cloth still dark green and the white lettering on the spine still bright and sharp. This is an ex school library copy but the only library stamp is the two line school name in ink on the title page with the number 152 below written by hand. There are a few pages with neat pencil underlining which could be erased quite easily. Some tape marks to the blank free endpapers. Inner hinges cracked but holding firm.

In the original green, grey and white dustwrapper with some chipping and rubbing to the edges and some loss to the top of the rear panel. Correct first issue wrapper with the blue Searchlight Books design printed on the rear. Price still intact on front inner flap. 3 short lines of blue ink writing on the inner rear flap. Overall a good copy of this classic work.
