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 small marks to the end papers in a very good dustwrapper indeed, which has a short closed tear to the front cover and minor wear to the head of the spine. A very well preserved copy of a book rarely seen in dustwrapper.

Huxley's first major novel and, with the obvious exception of Brave New World, his most important 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.
A 'radiant conversation-piece about the first "bright young people"' (Connolly)

Connolly 39.
