Dulau & Co Ltd, 1927.

First edition, deluxe issue, one of 50 copies printed on japon, signed by Huxley, Powys and the two authors, this copy a presentation copy for Dennis Wheatley, inscribed on the limitation bookplate, "Out of series and is for D Yates Wheatley". Original publisher's buckram lettered in gilt to spine and upper cover. Wheatley's bookplate to front endpaper. A near fine copy.

Before making his name as an author, Dennis Wheatley was a keen book collector and accumulated the pre-eminent collection of the works of Aldous Huxley of his time. The Huxley part of the bibliography is based upon his collection as Muir acknowledges in the introduction,
"We wish to record our grateful thanks to all who have helped in the compilation of this bibliography, and especially to... Mr. D. Yates Wheatley, from whose extraordinarily fine and complete collection of Mr. Huxley's works most of the collations were made..."
