J. B. Priestley - English Journey

£6.99

Product description

English Journey is an account of Priestley's travels in England, originally published in 1934. This beautiful Folio Society edition dates from 1997.
Commissioned by publisher Victor Gollancz to write a study of contemporary England, Priestley recounts his travels around England in 1933. He shares his observations on the social problems he witnesses, and appeals for democratic socialist change. English Journey was an influential work, inspiring George Orwell's The Road to Wigan Pier, and "has even been credited with winning the 1945 election for the Labour Party".

Although the strikingly designed slip case is a little scuffed on the front edge and rear, lower corner, the book is in excellent condition, appearing unread.
