1962 A Clockwork Orange
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, Publishers' Original Binding, Signed, With Dustwrapper
A first edition, first issue of this canonical novel. A novel known for its use of 'Nadsat' slang, and many time a contentious read, having been censored in some schools and libraries in the United States.
Hailed as an dystopian, sci-fi, satirical, black comedy; this novel explores many genres. The teenage protagonist Alex narrates his violent exploits and experiences. Time Magazine regarded this work as on the list of 100 best English-language novels written since 1923.
Burgess' novel was later adapted into a dystopian crime film by Stanley Kubrick.
Signed by Burgess to a loosely inserted leaf.
With the original unclipped dustwrapper, which is the first issue with the extended flaps.
A lovely, very scarce example of this important literary novel.
In the publisher's original cloth binding. With unclipped dustwrapper. Externally, this work is in an excellent condition. Just some minor bumping to the head and tail of spine. Dustwrapper smart. A few small closed tears to the head and tail of wrap. Small chip to the head of rear joint. Creasing to the flyleaves. Internally, firmly bound. Pages are very bright. Light scattered spots to the fore-edge, not affecting pages.
