HUXLEY, Aldous

HUXLEY, Aldous The Burning Wheel

B. H. Blackwell, 1916.

First edition. Original pale yellow wrappers with title label on upper cover. Pictorial title page and frontispiece. A fine copy, with just a touch of wear to the spine ends. Very bright and clean. Housed in a custom slipcase and chemise.

The author's first book written in his last year at Oxford, and published in an edition of only 350. Huxley, primarily remembered for his novels and to a lesser extent his essays, began his writing career as a poet.  While a student at Balliol College at Oxford, having been exempted from military service due to extremely poor eyesight, he was involved in several student poetry magazines.  In September 1916 this first book of poetry was printed in Oxford.

Number 7 in a series entitled "Adventurers All", a series of young poets "unknown to fame."
