1960 The First Men in the Moon
What Our Customers Say...
Publishers' Original Binding
'The First Men in the Moon' is an important science romance novel, following a journey to the Moon undertaken by a businessman and an eccentric scientist.
By H. G. Wells, this work was originally serialised in the 'Strand Magazine' from December 1900 to August 1901.
This work inspired C. S. Lewis, as he strove to write his own science fiction to be the antithesis of Wells' work, though he did enjoy 'The First Men in the Moon'.
