1949 Ape and Essence
What Our Customers Say...
First Edition, With Dustwrapper
In the publisher's original cloth binding, with the original unclipped dust wrapper. Ape and Essence (1948) is a novel by Aldous Huxley (1894-1963). It is set in a dystopia like his famous work Brave New World. It is largely a satire of the rise of large-scale warfare and warmongering in the 20th century, and presents a pessimistic view of the politics of mutually assured destruction. The book makes use of surreal imagery, depicting humans as apes who will inevitably kill themselves.
