First edition. Signature of Dr. H.H. Eggers and another early name on the front fly, spine slightly soiled, a very good or better copy in a spine-tanned, near very good dustwrapper with some soiling and overall wear. Signed by Huxley in purple ink on the front fly (his name has offset a bit on the front flap, so one could delude oneself into thinking there are two signatures). A collection of short stories from the author of Brave New World.
