    Limited Edition Set of the Works of H. G. Wells, Signed by the Author An exceptional example of this sought-after set of books, published for the American market by Charles Scribner and Sons, New York, in 1924. Scribners sold 1,050 numbered sets, of which this is number 804. (Another 620 sets were distributed in Britain.) Original cloth bindings. The first of the 28 volumes is autographed by Wells. The set comes in the original cardboard slip cases, which exhibit only the slightest shelf wear. The books themselves are in the original wax wraps and appear to have been opened rarely if at all. Some of the wax wraps have imperfections, but most are near-mint. A marvelous example of this rare edition. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
