  • Brave New World – Aldous Huxley

    Brave New World – Aldous Huxley

    A King’s ransom for a first edition or this rather nice Vanguard Library copy from the 1950’s in the scarce Vanguard glam dust jacket rarely seen – check it out.

    Octavo, in Vanguard style, 214 pages, evenly toned from period paper type, clean and tightly bound, original owners name at front and back. Jacket has some carefulrepairs and the bookseller’s sticker to front but it’s really jolly good.

    One of the standout novels of the 20th Century with a long and interesting Forward by the author … who suggest he would make some changes now but “rolling in the muck is not the best way of getting clean” – if you get it don’t let it put you off – this is one of those books everyone should read.

    Brave New World is that special dust jacket

  • The Foundation Trilogy [Foundation: Foundation and Empire: Second Foundation] and then The Stars, Like Dust; The Naked sun; I Robot – Complete & Unabridged – Isaac Asimov

    The Foundation Trilogy [Foundation: Foundation and Empire: Second Foundation] and then The Stars, Like Dust; The Naked sun; I Robot – Complete & Unabridged – Isaac Asimov

    A monster collection including Isaac Asimov’s greatest work the Foundation Trilogy and more all in one place.

    This is a Book Club edition in association with the principal’s Heinemann, Secker and Octopus Book. Issued in 1982. Extra thick octavo, 863 pages. A very slight even tone to the pages due to the nature of the paper very clean throughout – an unread copy we suspect. Binding and dust wrapper very good. Too heavy for overseas without a postage supplement.

    Asimov won the Hugo Award for BEST ALL Time Science Fiction Series with the trilogy … the Galactic empire crumbles but one man creates a new force for civilised life … it gets complicated.

    And at the very end I, Robot … given the explosion of AI makes this a must read or a read again.

    Asimov – his best stuff – will keep you going through the winter.
