Brave New World [Folio Society]
By Aldous Huxley
The classic dystopian novel in a spectacular Folio edition
- Third Impression [The Folio Society, London, 1975]; foil-covered boards, embossed outline of baby with flowers [from Rosoman drawing on pg 20], red titling to spine, red topstain, top of spine scraped, [ownership?] sticker remnant to title page, a very good copy; in the plain black slipcase, rubbed at edges & with a couple of splits starting
- With drawings by Leonard Rosoman
- The classic dystopian novel – first published in 1932, it’s portrayal of a completely apathetic society, placated by drugs [soma] & engulfed in personal gratification [feelies] could be seen as having come pretty close to fruition!
