H.G. Wells, the master of futuristic fiction, is also famous for his history of the world. The original was published in 24 serials, just after the First World War; it has now been collected and reprinted into two leather-bound volumes. Each volume contains the text as well as the illustrations, which accompanied each serialization and vintage ads.
This Deluxe Limited Edition tells the tale of earth from the dinosaurs up to the early decades of the 20th century, a sweeping epic worthy of this remarkable presentation. The volumes measure 8-3/8" by 10-7/8" and are bound in genuine leather, with a raised spine embossed in 22-karat gold. Inside, acid-neutral paper ensures the longevity of your treasured set; the paper will not crumble with age, preserving each elegant image and line. A custom slipcase is included to ensure safe storage and display of the volumes.
The Outline of History, as Wells first crafted it almost a hundred years ago, is an enduring work from a renowned author. This exceptional edition, limited to only 400 hand-numbered sets, will be equally lasting as the focal point of your display.
