1963 CLOCKWORK ORANGE Anthony Burgess Hardcover Dust Jacket

Regular price $77.00

This is a 1963 hardcover edition of CLOCKWORK ORANGE by Anthony Burgess. It was published by W.W. Norton & Company. The dust jacket is in very good condition with only a few dimples. The book has orange boards with black lettering for the title on the spine. The binding is sound and there isn't any obvious signs of inscriptions, marginalization, or dog-eared pages.


A Clockwork Orange has faced book banning attempts due to the sexual violence it depicts. In 1973, a bookseller in Orem, Utah was arrested for selling the novel. The author argues that if one can only perform good or only perform evil, then he is a clockwork orange—meaning that he has the appearance of an organism lovely with color and juice but is in fact only a clockwork toy to be wound up by God or the Devil. If you are a collector of banned books, this classic novel is one of you will want in your library.
