-----------hardcover, a Near Fine copy in a lightly rubbed Very Good price clipped dustjacket, small chip on rear panel, 165 pages, b&w photos, frontispiece by Ardizzone, ---"Jacintha Buddicom (10 May 1901 - 1994) was a poet and a childhood friend of George Orwell (Eric Blair). Buddicom was born at Plymouth but moved with her family to Shiplake, Berkshire. There she first met Eric Blair in the summer of 1914 when he was standing on his head in a field at the bottom of the Buddicoms' garden. From that summer afternoon, Eric and his younger sister Avril became very close friends with Buddicom and her younger brother and sister, Prosper and Guinever. With Prosper and Guiny, Blair enjoyed shooting, fishing and birdwatching, while with Jacintha he preferred to read and write poetry and dream of future intellectual adventures. At this time he told Buddicom that at some point he might write a book in a style similar to that of H. G. Wells A Modern Utopia, although Nineteen Eighty-Four turned out to be far different from Buddicom’s expectations."---, any image directly beside this listing is the actual book and NOT a generic photo
