London: Secker & Warburg, 1945. Green cloth, stamped in white. Cloth sunned along top and bottom edges, as often, spine slightly cocked, but a very good copy for this book, in somewhat worn and soiled dust jacket (printed on the verso of surplus Searchlight stock) with shallow loss at crown of spine and two creased tears at top edge of upper panel showing offset from old repairs. First edition of the most widely known beast- fable in 20th century English letters. Published under wartime manufacturing constraints - albeit in a sizeable first printing of 4500 copies - this title has been difficult to locate collector's condition for some time now. A reprint was called for almost immediately, and the second printing of 10,000 copies was published later the same month. The work's popularity demonstrated, Harcourt ordered a first printing of the American edition consisting of 50,000 copies. MODERN MOVEMENT 93. FENWICK A10a. (Inventory #: WRCLIT75674)
