For the first time since their original publication in Pearson's Magazine, Warwick Goble's illustrations for H. G. Wells's classic tale are available in an exquisite hardcover edition. Includes more than 50 black-and-white illustrations.
A pioneer of science fiction, H. G. Wells (1866-1946) wrote thrilling adventures about time travel, space exploration, alien invasion, and scientific experiments gone awry. His tales of obsession, revelation, and discovery remain compellingly readable and relevant. Warwick Goble (1862-1943) was among the most important figures from the Golden Age of Illustration. As a resident illustrator at Macmillan, he created dazzling images for The Water Babies, The Modern Reader's Chaucer, Treasure Island, Kidnapped, and many other books.
