    HUXLEY, Elspeth.

    The Mottled Lizard.

    London: Chatto & Windus 1962.

    First edition, early printing of one of Huxley’s best known works. Octavo, original half cloth. Presentation copy, inscribed by the author on the half-title page, “For Joe Ferrier with gratitude for your interest in my childhood memories – now are half a century old. Elspeth Huxley.” Laid in are three typed letters signed by Huxley to Joe Ferrier, one of which reads in part, “I much appreciate your continuing interest in my writings – as much as I regret the appalling untidiness of this typing. My non-proficiency increases with the years and the typewriter is now nearly as old as I am; a few more years and, in this age of word-processors etc.; it may become a valuable antique. With best wishes, yours sincerely, Elspeth Huxley.” The recipient, Joe Ferrier was a lifelong pen pal and friend of Huxley’s. They often exchanged letters, books, and article clippings between England and the United States. Fine in a fine dust jacket. Jacket design by Rosemary Grimble.
