Limited edition, one of 1200 copies. Signed by Bill Mayer without inscription on limitation page. 2017 Full-Leather. 218 pp. Brown full leather, gilt and green titles and decorations, all edges gilt, marbled endpapers, ribbon marker bound in. 10 tipped in color plates by Bill Mayer, produced specially for this edition. 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.
