This is an auction for SEVEN GREAT NOVELS OF H G WELLS in one hardback volume.

The seven complete & unabridged books are:

* THE TIME MACHINE - "This is the first novel by H G Wells, first published in book form in 1895. The novel is considered one of the earliest works of science fiction and the progenitor of the "time travel" subgenre. A nameless Time Traveller who is hurtled into the year 802,701 by his elaborate ivory, crystal, and brass contraption. The world he finds is peopled by two races: the decadent Eloi, fluttery and useless, are dependent for food, clothing, and shelter on the simian subterranean Morlocks, who prey on them. The two races symbolize Wells's vision of the eventual result of unchecked capitalism."

* THE WAR OF THE WORLDS - "This is a science-fiction novel by H G Wells, first published in 1898. The story, which details twelve days in which invaders from Mars attack the planet Earth, captured popular imagination with its fast-paced narrative and images of Martians and interplanetary travel. The novel helped launch the career of Orson Welles when he presented an adaptation of it on his radio program, "The Mercury Theatre on the Air," on Oct. 30, 1938. The simulated news broadcast of a Martian landing in New Jersey, complete with updated news bulletins, caused a widespread panic among listeners."
