Aldous Leonard Huxley (1894 – 1963) was an English writer, novelist, philosopher, and prominent member of the famous Huxley family.
The author of nearly fifty books, Huxley was best known for his novels (especially BRAVE NEW WORLD set in a dystopian future); for nonfiction works, such as The Doors of Perception, about his reactions to psychedelic drugs. He went on to publish travel writing, film stories, satire, essays, and screenplays.
By the end of his life, Huxley was widely acknowledged as one of the pre-eminent intellectuals of his time. He was nominated for the Nobel Prize in Literature seven times.
Toledano's Guide (pp.165, 176) places the printing of the design for this dust jacket rear panel from 1954-59, while the number "393" printed at the top inside of the dust jacket indicates a printing in 1961, hence making this copy an early reprint of the ML edition.
VERY GOOD tight, clean copy. Light wear to cloth. Dust jacket is bright, clean, with edgewear, and price-clipping. SCARCE in a dj this good.
