The green wrapper is unclipped and has WIDER end flaps – indicative of a proof dust wrapper. There is a small amount of light restoration to the price on the end flap. The maroon variant is clipped and has the usual fading to the spine. Housed in a custom-made slipcase with divider and gilt titles. A rare pair of Orwell’s masterpiece.
