DW had a particularly good collection of Aldous Huxley, and the story of how Huxley came to autograph them is told in the next exhibit.

The collection was so extensive that it formed the basis of an early bibliography which was published by Dulau in 1927, with DW’s copy being personally signed by the authors and their subjects.
