The War In The Air

London: George Bell & Sons, 1908. First Edition; first binding. Quinn bookplate; minor cloth wear; a very good copy in a good, supplied example of the dust jacket with numerous chips and tears, soiling and some bleeding through where tape was removed from the verso. The chips, numerous as they are, only affect “The” at the top of the spine; in a custom clamshell box. The front panel prints a color reproduction of the frontispiece which a later binding pasted onto the front cover. In this novel, Wells foresaw the deadly and far-reaching nature of warfare in the 20th century.
