Reader's note

Looking for unique vintage books? Here is a 1953 edition of George Orwell's Down and Out in Paris and London with beautiful blue boards and a brown leather spine. It is a memoir in two parts on the theme of poverty in the two cities. Its target audience was the middle- and upper-class members of society—those who were more likely to be well educated—and exposes the poverty existing in two prosperous cities: Paris and London. The first part is an account of living in near-extreme poverty destitution in Paris and the experience of casual labour in restaurant kitchens. The second part is a travelogue of life on the road in and around London from the tramp's perspective, with descriptions of the types of hostel accommodation available and some of the characters to be found living on the margins. Read on in this gem among a bounty of stunning vintage books and classic novels on our online used bookstore.
