A Clockwork Orange
By Anthony Burgess

First edition, first impression (Heinemann, 1962) with first state black boards and wider dust jacket flaps.

Publisher’s original black cloth with lettering to spine in gilt. Very good with a minor knock to foot of lower board and an area of abrasion to the surface of the front and rear endpapers resulting from the removal of a bookplate; brown spot to gutter foot of opening pages with some staining to opening page of chapter 1 and small hole to page fore-edge; a couple of impressions to the bottom of page 97 also showing, with increasingly less prominence, on following 10 pages. The original dust jacket is price-clipped and has a couple of small marks in biro to upper flap and spine panel verso; minimal wear to extremities and a couple of small nicks to top edge with associated tape repair to verso, better than very good otherwise. A modern dystopian highlight.
