Crome Yellow

HUXLEY, Aldous

HUXLEY, Aldous Crome Yellow

Chatto & Windus, 1921.

First edition. Original yellow orange cloth with title label on spine in rare cream and green lettered dustwrapper. A near fine copy with a slightly dusty spine in a good only dustwrapper which has significant chips to the spine and rear cover and wear to the head of the spine and corners.

Huxley's first novel and most important of his early work, a thinly veiled satire on Garsington Manor, the home of Lady Ottoline Morrell, where Huxley had lived and worked as a farm labourer during World War I, and where he met his first wife.
Included by Cyril Connoly as part of his 100 Key Books of the Modern Movement and described as "radiant conversation-piece about the first 'bright young people'".
Seldom encountered in a dustwrapper.

Connolly 39.
