[DELUXE]. Aun Aprendo: A Comprehensive Bibliography of the Writings of Aldous Leonard Huxley.
Boston: Bromer Booksellers, 2011. Octavo. 408pp. One of 50 deluxe copies signed by the bibliographer, of which 40 are available for sale. The deluxe edition includes a previously unpublished poem by Huxley dedicated to his first wife Maria. Aun Aprendo: A Comprehensive Bibliography of the Writings of Aldous Leonard Huxley is the culmination of over twenty years of research, fact-finding, and detective work undertaken by David J. Bromer. "Aun Aprendo," which means "Still Learning" in Spanish, was the title of a commencement speech that Huxley gave at the progressive Happy Valley School in California in 1951. Bromer's experience as a collector and bibliographer of Huxley's work has sparked a life-long process of education and discovery. With over 2,000 entries, Aun Aprendo is the most current and comprehensive descriptive bibliography of Aldous Huxley's works ever produced. It describes the first appearances of Huxley's works in the English language and identifies many previously unrecorded contributions to books, pamphlets, and periodicals. As a result, Aun Aprendo is an essential tool for librarians, scholars, book collectors, and interested Huxleyans, offering insight into the labyrinthine mind of one of the foremost thinkers of the twentieth century. Bound in the manner of the British deluxe edition of Brave New World, with bright yellow cloth and a gilt-titled blue leather spine label. A blue cloth slipcase protects the book. As new.
