Brave New World. London: Chatto & Windus, 1934. A New Impression. Brown cloth boards, title in white to spine, in publisher’s dust jacket printed in red & brown. Light chipping to jacket edges, contents in very good condition.

Dystopian novel by English author Aldous Huxley, written in 1931 and published in 1932. One of the few science fiction novels of the 1930s that was considered a major work by the critics.

Largely set in a futuristic World State, inhabited by genetically modified citizens and an intelligence-based social hierarchy, the novel anticipates huge scientific advancements in reproductive technology, sleep-learning, psychological manipulation, and classical conditioning, that are combined to make a utopian society which is challenged by only a single individual: the story’s protagonist.

First published by Chatto & Windus in 1932, this is the first printing of the New Impression.
