Brave New World

By Aldous, Huxley




Aldous Huxley's prophetic novel Brave New World describes a possible future where everything is controlled by the ultimate totalitarian state. Every aspect of life--from the economy to recreation to sex-- is controlled. The story follows the characters and uses their feelings of rejection or ostracism to show the extreme nature of this future society.

This book is commonly taught in most courses on English literature, and has had an enormous impact on both American and British writers, as well as on political movements and contemporary thought on civil liberties. A first edition of this classic dystopian novel would be a prize in any collection.

First edition identification and notes

Published in 1932 in London by Chatto & Windus, the first edition is bound in yellow cloth.

A limited edition of 324 numbered copies were signed by the author, and these comprise the most valuable copies, often commanding above $7,000.

The first American edition, printed by Doublday, Doran & Company also in 1932, is also highly sought after. This edition has a black spine, and both the boards and spine feature gilt decor. A special limited edition of 250 numbered and signed copies in good condition can fetch over $4,000.

"After the success of his first three novels, Huxley abandoned the fictional milieu of literary London and directed his satire toward an imagined future. He admitted that the original idea of Brave New World was to challenge H.G. Wells' Utopian vision... The novel also marks Huxley's increasing disenchantment with the world, which was to result in his leaving England for California in 1937 in search of a more spiritual life. The book was immediately successful" (Parker & Kermode, 161-62). Named by Modern Library as one of the 100 Greatest Novels of the twentieth century.

Contemporary owner's name on the front paste-down, spine very slightly cocked. Dust jacket with only trivial wear at the extremities, a few short tears (no loss), but in exceptional condition overall. A defining moment in the genre of the dystopian novel, Brave New World considers the dangers that new technologies and mass modernization pose to the very core of humanness. Rather than depicting these developments as gateways to utopia, as writers such as H.G. Wells had done, Huxley foreshadowed how radically technology and psychological conditioning could limit individual rights ranging from sexuality and reproduction to creativity to love. A "nightmarish prognostication of a future in which humanity has been destroyed by science" (DNB). Near Fine in Near Fine dust jacket.

Brave New World

HUXLEY, Aldous (1894-1963)

London: Chatto and Windus, 1932. [Dystopian novel] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (20 x 14cm), pp.[8]; 306; [2]. Publisher's blue cloth with gilt titles and decoration to spine. Two ownership inscriptions to flyleaf, some light spotting to preliminaries and the occasional mark within, endpapers split slightly along the gutter of the rear hinge. A little toned to edges. Cloth lightly rubbed and marked, faint ring mark to lower board. An attractive copy. Very good. A modern highlight, and a landmark of 20th century fiction suggesting that a future of boundless materialist happiness, designer narcosis and no strings attached sex might not be all its made out to be. I still say we should give it a fair crack of the whip though. Aldous Huxley was awarded the 1939 James Tait Black Memorial Prize for After Many A Summer Dies The Swan. The prize was founded in memory of a partner in the publishing house of A. & C. Black Ltd., and is one of the oldest and most prestigious book awards in Britain. Eschelbac & Shober [10], Bleiler; Checklist of Fantastic Literature [311].Connolly 100 listed, also in Modern Library's Top 100 Novels [1998].
