A Clockwork Orange | Anthony Burgess
This first edition of “A Clockwork Orange” by Anthony Burgess, published by Heinemann in 1962, is a highly collectible item. The book is in good condition, bound in chocolate brown cloth with silver titles on the spine. The original, price-clipped magenta dust jacket, designed by Barry Trengrove, shows some spine fading, edge browning, and minor chipping but is now protected by a clear archival cover. Light flecking on all edges, with excellent condition text, makes this copy a valuable addition to any collection.
