This Vintage Easton Press edition of Aldous Huxley’s masterpiece “A Brave New World” is truly heirloom quality. The book is bound in fine leather, with 22kt gold stamped spine accents and cover board designs, gold gilded edge pages, raised hubs on the spine, and the front and back endpages are made of Moire silk. The pages are all printed on acid-nuetral paper, and smyth sewn, with a yellow satin ribbon sewn into the binding to be used as a page marker. This collectable book was printed in 1978, and is in excellent vintage condition, appearantly never being read or cracked open. There is some minor rubbing on the gilded page edges, but otherwise this copy is absolutely free of any damage or wear.

In October 1930, the English occultist Aleister Crowley dined with Huxley in Berlin, and to this day rumours persist that Crowley introduced Huxley to Peyote on that occasion. He was introduced to Mescaline (considered to be the key active ingredient of peyote) by the psychiatrist Humphry Osmond in 1953. Through Dr. Osmond, Huxley met millionaire Alfres Matthew Hubbard who would deal with LSD on a wholesale basis. On 24 December 1955, Huxley took his first dose of LSD. Indeed, Huxley was a pioneer of self-directed psychedelic drug use "in a search for enlightenment", famously taking 100 micrograms of LSD as he lay dying.

This impressive book measures 10 ¼” tall x 7 ½” wide, and includes several full – page black and white illustrations. Opposite of the title page is a color portrait of Aldous Huxley.
