Burmese Days

Publisher: © 1934 Harper and Brothers, USA, New York.

The First edition

By Daniel J. Leab:

Harper & Brothers, after Orwell agreed to some changes, published the book in the U.S. in October 1934. The American edition of Burmese Days received generally good reviews. After more discussion between Gollancz and Orwell, further alterations and modifications were made (e.g., the newspaper the Burmese Patriot was changed to the Burmese Sinn Feiner) ... The 1934 American edition, Orwell supposedly called “the true first edition and the better version.”
