Description

Paperblanks Embellished Manuscripts George Orwell, Nineteen Eighty-Four, 7 x 9 Inch Journal

Paperblanks celebrates Great Minds at Work with George Orwell's Nineteen Eighty-Four, a dystopian piece of science fiction that introduced famous terms " Big Brother" and "thoughtcrime" into our social lexicon.

Orwell was no great keeper of manuscripts; in fact, he famously instructed his literary executor to burn any remaining drafts when he died. Of all his writings, only one handwritten portion of Nineteen Eighty-Four survives. It contains four distinct stages of composition, written between 1946 and 1948, and accounts for nearly half of the final published work.

The surviving manuscript of Nineteen Eighty-Four resides in the John Hay Library at Brown University. It was donated by the author’s widow, Sonia Orwell, to a charity auction in 1952 and purchased by Scribner’s of New York. The manuscript was eventually purchased by Daniel Siegel, who published a facsimile edition in 1984 with help from the noted Orwell scholar Peter Davidson, before presenting the manuscript to the Library in 1992. Remaining copies of Siegel’s 1984 limited edition Facsimile of the Manuscript of Nineteen Eighty-Four, published by M & S Press, are available for purchase through M & S Press or Amazon.

Nineteen Eighty-Four is widely read and continues to be especially relevant today.  Journals are available in Lined and Blank paper in heavy quality 120 gsm paper.

About the Author George Orwell

George Orwell (1903–1950) is the pen name of Eric Arthur Blair, an English novelist, essayist, journalist and literary critic remembered for his passionate commitment to democratic socialism just as much as for his lucid prose. He called upon his experiences as a member of the Indian Imperial Police in Burma in much of his writing, with a lingering sense of adventure yet keen awareness of the injustices he witnessed informing his work.
