Extensively extra-illustrated with Huxleyan ephemera and letters. Three letters from Elspeth Huxley to Valerie Ryshworth Hill in Portugal are mounted on early pages, dating from 1977, the first of which describes the recent death of Huxley's mother, Nellie Grant at a great age. The third letter acknowledges the gift of a bookplate designed by Ryshworth Hill (an example tipped in opposite the letter) for 'Elspeth Huxley's Mother's Library in the Algarve (Design by V.R.H.)'. A further card from Huxley is laid in. The conchologist Peter Dance has noted on the title page 'Finished reading 31 July 2019'.
