A Clockwork Orange

A Clockwork Orange by Anthony Burgess is a major dystopian work published in 1962. It is a satirical black comedy set in a near-future where society is terrorized by ultra-violent youth gangs. The book is the basis for the controversial 1971 film directed by Stanley Kubrick and starring Malcolm McDowell. Octavo, first issue binding bound in black cloth with gilt lettering on the spine. 

Book has a slight lean and faint foxing to top page edges but otherwise near fine in a near fine dust jacket with minimal wear. A very pleasing copy.
