Over 40% of Orwell's handwritten fourth draft is reproduced in facsimile with a typescript, including corrections, on opposing pages. According to Orwell's second wife, Sonia (as quoted in the Peter Davidson's introduction), "George always threw away all his mss., letters etc, so his actual working methods are very badly docmented." And those that have survived are generally typescript, making the handwritten manuscript particularly interesting. Edited by Daniel G. Siegel. Fine in slipcase with just a touch of scuffing to one edge, still fine. UNACCOUNTABLY SCARCE.
