On the Margin by Aldous Huxley

£9.99

Product description

Originally published in 1923, this is a collection of all Huxley's essays from The Athenaeum, The Westminster Gazette, London Mercury, and Vanity Fair. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900s and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. This edition, a first thus, was issued in 1971.
There is a small printed Ex Libris label on the front fixed end paper and a neat dedication in ink on the free end paper (Christmas 1971 - from Ian). Aside from minor toning to the text block edges, especially the upper edge, and a slight problem from pages 99 to 106 (the top corners may have previously been stuck together slightly, now they are separate but some of their surfaces are worn a little thin), the book is in very good condition. All text is clear on clean pages, the bold design on the dust jacket remains colourful, with only slight age toning on the outer margins of the rear of the jacket, which is plain cream with clear black text.
