Aun Aprendo: A Comprehensive Bibliography of the Writings of Aldous Leonard Huxley follows in the long tradition of Huxley bibliographic research, started in 1927 by Percy H. Muir and Bertie van Thal, and continued today in an active community of Huxley scholars. David J. Bromer's new addition to that legacy is the culmination of over twenty years of research, fact-finding, and detective work, and, as a result, it is the most current and comprehensive descriptive bibliography of Aldous Huxley's works ever produced.
With over 2,000 novels, essays, short stories, poems, and more, Aun Aprendo identifies many previously unrecorded contributions to books, pamphlets, and periodicals. The bibliography describes the first editions and first appearances of Huxley's works in the English language, unless translated by Huxley himself, and therefore offers a wealth of information for book collectors, scholars, librarians, and interested Huxleyans.
Aun Aprendo is an essential tool to the labyrinthine mind of one of the foremost thinkers of the twentieth century and a man who wrote nearly every day of his adult life. It includes 13 full-color, full-page illustrations.
Dr. David J. Bromer has been collecting the works of Aldous Huxley for almost fifty years, ever since he attended Huxley's series of lectures at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in 1961. Dr. Bromer received an Sc.D. from MIT and pursued a career in scientific research for fifteen years before joining his wife, Anne, in antiquarian bookselling. Together, they built Bromer Booksellers, located in Copley Square, Boston since 1980, into a leading rare book business.
Dr. Bromer has served as a Trustee of The Associates of the Boston Public Library, is a member of The Society of Printers, and an associate member of The Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America.
