About This Item

New York: Limited Editions Club, 1934. Rockwell Kent. Printed from the revised edition of 1901, by the Pynson Printers of New York, with an introduction by Aldous Huxley. 'The Erewhonians say that we are drawn through life backwards; or again, that we go onwards into the future as into a dark corridor. Time walks beside us and flings back shutters as we advance; but the light thus given often dazzles us, and deepens the darkness which is in front.' (Samuel Butler, page 134) Illustrated by American artist Rockwell Kent, contemporary and student at the New York School of Art with George Bellows and Edward Hopper. Limited edition of 1500 copies signed by Rockwell Kent. Small quarto, decorated silk, spine slightly marked, a near-fine copy in the original papered slipcase.
