This is a rare edition of a Polish translation of the novel Animal Farm, published in 1974 by an émigré press in London. The book was banned in Poland until 1988 and was only distributed through the sources in England or as samizdats.

The translator Teresa Jeleńska befriended George Orwell in 1945 and became a translator of his works. Her translation of Animal Farm is the first translation of this work in any languages. The next two editions were published in London without her permission with a goal to distribute them in Poland.

The book is very rare. We could only find one institutional examples on Worldcat (The British Library).
