Early printing of the first illustrated edition ($2.95 jacket price, no edition or printing statement on copyright). Jacket lightly rubbed, slightly musty. 1954 Hard Cover. 155 pp. 8vo. Illustrations by Joy Batchelor & John Halas. Endorsement by Christopher Morley printed on front jacket panel, and by TIME on rear panel. A satirical look at Soviet totalitarianism using animals on a farm as an allegorical device. The revision of history by those in power is a theme that returns in Orwell's famous dystopian novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. While the setting of Animal Farm does not quite fit the parameters of a dystopian society, Orwell's work here seems to progress directly toward the speculations about future society in Nineteen Eighty-Four, common themes being the will to power, power's corrupting influence, and the obliteration of history.
