Hardcover, royal octavo in salmon cloth, housed in dark blue slipcase. 395 pages. Introduction by Norman H. Strouse. Illustrated by Lynton Lamb. No previous ownership marks. Spine lightly sunned and showing one small spot. Slipcase intact with no cracks or splits and only very light wear to corners. One of Wells’ better known novels outside the genre of science-fiction, it remains surprisingly relevant today in its critique of capitalism, the social system and the philosophical questions of behavior and responsibility. Very good in a very good slipcase.
