Item Description: London: Chatto and Windus, 1932. Hard Cover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Included. 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. Publisher's blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt; in the original pictorial dark blue dust jacket, with an illustration of a globe and airplane to the front panel. Near fine or better, with a slight lean and a hint of toning to the spine, former owner's pencil inscription to the front free endpaper, otherwise clean interior; unclipped dust jacket, with some very minor rubbing to the extremities, lacking the usual toning to the spine, short closed tear to the rear hinge at the spine head, faint vertical creases to the otherwise fresh panels. Overall, a beautiful copy, rare in the original dust jacket, and in excellent condition. One of the classic 20th century dystopian novels, Brave New World tells the story of Huxley's envisioned future for modern society: a totalitarian regime in which individuality has been replaced by conditioned uniformity and free thinking is suppressed with constant, mindless entertainment enhanced by government sanctioned recreational, mood-altering drugs. When this future "utopia" is breached by a "savage" who was raised without modern luxury, Huxley exposes that, while the future has secured the happiness and general well-being of all members of society, the meaning of life has been lost in the process. Unlike George Orwell's 1984 or Kurt Vonnegut's Player Piano, Huxley does not envision a government that uses terror or force to maintain control over its citizens, nor one that inherently depresses its constituents for the sake of progress. Instead, the chilling moral of Brave New World is that, while "it is usual for human beings to suppose that, whatever the immediate outlook may be, ultimately all will be for the best in the best of all possible worlds," it is important to remember not to be "too optimistic" or forget to question one's surroundings and the motives of those in positions of power.

Item Description: Chatto & Windus, London. 1932, 1st edition, 1st printing. () Near fine in very good dust jacket. 306pp. Octavo. Bound in publisher's dark blue cloth with gold gilt lettering and decorations stamped to the spine. The top edge of text block stained blue. Slight bumping to corners. Some minor spots of foxing to the bottom edge. Illustrated dust jacket is price clipped and has some minor rubbing to the back panel, but is in very good condition otherwise. Internally clean and an overall tight and bright copy. This is the first trade edition of Huxley's seminal piece of dystopic literature in the scarcely seen dust jacket. This novel takes place in an imagined dystopic state where the population is limited; natural reproduction and, as a result, the family, have been abolished; children are educated through hypnopaedic processes. Citizens have been conditioned to accept their stations in life through a process of breeding in castes, sensational entertainment, drugs, encouraged recreational sex and an abundance of material goods. There are areas of the world where "savage reservations" exist without such luxuries and family units and romantic relationships still exist. The majority of the story revolves around one such savage, John, as he is introduced to the New World and ultimately rejects the morally empty society. A beautiful copy of one of the greatest works of dystopic fiction and a deeply influential work that has been alluded to in numerous songs, movies, television shows and other books.
