New York : Harcourt, Brace and Company, (1952). First US Printing. Pp. (4),[v]-xxiii,(3),[3]-232. 8vo, yellow calico cloth. Fenwick, George Orwell: A Bibliography, A.6c. "Here is a first-hand account of the Spanish Civil War by a man who fought and was wounded init. it. Fortunately for us, he also happened to be a man who had a bettergrasp of contemporary history than perhaps any other man of our time. In Homage to Catalonia George Orwell, with his uncompromising honesty, spells out for the first time the manner in which the Communists, directed from Moscow, betrayed the Loyalist forces. It is a tribute to Orwell that when the book first appeared in Eneland in 1938, the Communists lnstantly recognizedhim as an eloquent and dangerous foe. It was during this period in Spain that Orwell learned for himelf — he had come to distrust the journalism of the era - the function of totalitarianism in prectice, whether of the right or the left. In this sense, Homage to Catalonia is a forerunner to his greatnovel, Nineteen Eighty-Four." - from the dj.

About this Item: AB Független kiadó, Budapest, 1986. Condition: In fine condition. First Hungarian edition. Samizdat. Mimeograph print. In publisher's illustrated wrappers. 127, (3) p. Samizdat edition of the Orwell's memoir of the Spanish Civil War. Orwell's works, due to his criticism toward the U.S.S.R. were banned in the Communist block. In Communist régimes the publication of many material were illegal and therefor underground publishings and secret ways of spreading of "samizdat" books developed. Samizdat editions, mostly political pamphlets, appeared in Hungary in the 1970s in the poor form of carbon copies of typescripts. Later in the 80s the so-called Democratic Opposition in Hungary established semi-underground publishings, like "AB Független" to publish not merely political literature but also literature that was banned by the Commuist politics, among others the works of George Orwell. Scarce, we could not trace any copies in institutional holdings in the US. In publisher's illustrated wrappers First Hungarian edition. Samizdat. Mimeograph print. Seller Inventory # 508

About this Item: London: Secker and Warburg, 1938. Hard Cover. Condition: Near Fine. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Publisher's lime green cloth, lettered in gilt. About near fine, with some light rubbing to the extremities, minor toning to the spine, some faint soiling to the otherwise bright boards, minor offsetting to the free endpapers, otherwise fresh interior. Overall, a very clean and pleasing copy. Homage to Catalonia is Orwell's account of the Spanish Civil War that he wrote shortly after he escaping from Spain to France in 1937. After heading to Spain as a journalist in 1936, Orwell joined the Republicans in their fight against Franco's Nationalists; unlike other leftist foreign intellectuals, however, he joined the Workers' Party of Marxist Unification (Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista, or POUM). In Homage to Catalonia, Orwell recounts his experiences as a soldier and disillusionment with totalitarian regimes. Notably, Victor Gollancz, who had published the English editions of Orwell's earlier works, refused to publish Homage to Catalonia because of its radical political stance. Instead, it was published by Secker and Warburg, the firm that would go on to publish Orwell's best known works - Animal Farm (1945) and Nineteen Eighty-Four (1949). Seller Inventory # GO20
