New York: The Fountain Press, 1931. First Edition. Octavo. Item #028456
First edition. Limited to 842 copies. The present copy is #795 signed by Aldous Huxley. 46 pages. One of his most scarce earlier works which shows his great relationship between music and poetry. He had also been the music critic for the Westminster Gazette on opera and classical music. He outraged many when he called Bartok a minor composer. On the other hand, his column was read both for its literary excellence and his intelligent insights. Bound in 1/4 black cloth over marbled paper covered boards, paper spine label lettered in brown, edges rubbed. A very nice copy without names, plates, or foxing.
