RESERVED - Brave New World - Aldous Huxley

1932 - Chatto & Windus, London - First Edition
‘O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is!
O brave new world that hath such creatures in't!’

An exceptional copy of the first edition, in a bright example of the iconic dust jacket, without restoration, price-clipping or technological modification. Housed in custom made clamshell case of fine blue morocco leather over matching cloth, velvet lined, and lettered in gilt to the spine.

A modern highlight, and landmark of 20th century fiction. Huxley’s bitterly satiric account of an inhumane society controlled by technology, in which art and religion have been abolished and human beings reproduce by artificial fertilisation.

‘Brilliantly plausible fantasy... a Utopia which is never dull, of which the horror is always credible as one’s sympathies grow more involved with the fate of the young primitive from the Indian Reservation who challenges the machine.’ – Cyril Connolly,
Modern Movement.
