    Description

    H. G. Wells: The Time Machine: An Invention. (London: William Heinemann, 1895), first edition, later issue, no statement of printing on the copyright page, [32] page publisher's catalog bound in back with The Lane That Had No Turning at the head, page edges rough cut or untrimmed, catalog probably produced in 1900, 152 pages, tan cloth with purple titles, 12mo (4.75" x 7.25"), prelims foxed, previous owner's small ink stamped initials on ffep, boards toned, light shelf wear to bottom edge of boards, else near fine. Currey indicates that 10,000 copies of Wells' book were originally printed and bound in small numbers in both wraps and hardcover editions. Apparently other copies were bound as and when needed. This probably accounts for later variant publisher's catalog present in the volume offered. From the Ventura Collection.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
