The UK edition was bifurcated into signed and trade issues, published simultaneously on February 2nd, following publication of the signed U.S. issue on January 21st, and preceding the U.S. trade issue on February 4th. (Connolly; Eschelbach and Shober.)

“In his latest novel, ‘Brave New World,’ Aldous Huxley presents a provocative picture of the planet some 600 years hence. Worthy of note, in passing, is that the talkies will have become, by that distant date, the feelies. Onward, Hollywood! Here is a new incentive to a greater art.” (Philip K. Scheuer, Los Angeles Times, April 3, 1932.)
