Nineteen Eighty-Four - George Orwell - Glossary

Using The Nineteen Eighty-Four edition by Longman, The Bridge Series (1983), ISBN-10: 0582536588, with the complete text edition. It has 329 pages and is intended for English learners, so the editors included a glossary for readers in the end of the book.

Since this is the first book in English I read with the intention of building a glossary, I didn't take care to note what pages I was reading up to page 50. But this shouldn't be the problem, since you are probably reading a different edition that pages don't match.
