Aldous Huxley Autograph Letter Signed 1932 to Sir Courtenay Mansel NF. Autograph letter signed, Aldous Huxley, La Gorguette, Sanary, [France], 25 November 1932, to [Sir Courtenay] Mansel thanking him for his kind and most interesting letter and referring to his (Huxley's) poetry anthology, the imperfections of which are due to the fact that I had been lazily collecting for it during only a fairly short time, during which I suppose I didnt happen to read the poets you mention. How I came to neglect Villon, I cant imagine; for I have a very great admiration for him.

But when it came to the final putting together, I entirely forgot - as I now realize - his very existence. It renders the persistent melancholy of the original - but renders it too well, so that there is an effect of harping almost painfully on the same note... Two pages on rectos of 2 sheets of pale blue stationery, some creasing, oblong 8vo. NOTE Earlier in this year (1932) Huxley had published Brave New World, becoming an international bestseller and making Huxley the best-known British novelist between the wars.
