What Our Customers Say...

Description

Early Edition, Fine Binding, Publishers' Original Binding

This text was Wells' first book of short stories and contains an impressive variety of the famous British author's science fiction and fantasy work. Before being incorporated into this volume published by Methuen & Co. in 1895, all of the stories had been published in a huge variety of weekly and monthly periodicals. These periodicals include: 'The St. James’s Gazette', 'Pall Mall Gazette', and 'Black and White', a British illustrated periodical that published other great works by authors such as Conan Doyle, Bram Stoker, and Robert Louis Stevenson. The short stories included within this text are as follows: 'The Stolen Bacillus' 'The Flowering of the Strange Orchid' 'In the Avu Observatory' 'The Triumphs of a Taxidermist' 'A Deal in Ostriches' 'Through a Window' 'The Temptation of Harringay' 'The Flying Man' 'The Diamond Maker' 'Æpyornis Island' 'The Remarkable Case of Davidson’s Eyes' 'The Lord of the Dynamos' 'The Hammerpond Park Burglary' 'The Moth' 'The Treasure in the Forest'
