The First edition
By Daniel J. Leab:
The first American edition came after Orwell's death. The publisher printed 4,000 copies in May 1952; a second impression of 3,000 came weeks later in July. It has remained in print. American critics generally enthused about the book and echoed Trilling's judgment that it was “one of the important documents of our time.”
