Clockwork Orange 1st Edition Sold at Auction

We sold a first edition copy of the modern literary classic A Clockwork Orange for $2,400 at auction. The book was first published in 1962 and is Anthony Burgess’s most famous novel. The 1971 Stanley Kubrick film adaptation also remains a cult classic and considered by many to be one of the best films of the 1970s. Please see Clockwork Orange 1st edition lot details below:

Rare First Edition of “A Clockwork Orange” in First Edition Dustjacket — With Alternative Ending Preferred by Burgess of Redemption by the Novel’s Protagonist

Rare first edition, first printing of “A Clockwork Orange” by Anthony Burgess. Published by Heinemann: London: 1962. First printing dustjacket shows the 16s price and wide flaps, as called for. Both dustjacket and book are in remarkably near fine condition; dustjacket’s deep purple-red color is still bright and shows only the faintest chipping on the head of the spine. Black clothed book retains sharp gilt lettering and is only slightly cocked. This original first edition copy of Burgess’ landmark novel concludes in its final chapter with the protagonist Alex making a moral choice to forgo violence. It is said that Burgess regretted allowing the American edition to omit the last chapter and considered the movie by Stanley Kubrick “deeply flawed” for its omission. This original true English first edition retains the 21st chapter as Burgess intended. A near fine copy of an important 20th century novel. Sold for $2,400.
