Book Description
First Edition, Rare Variant Paperback issue, this is a very scarce variant paperback issue of the First Edition of H. G Wells classic “The Time Machine”, seemingly much scarcer than the paperback issue with the Sphinx design on the upper cover, bound without the inserted publishers catalogue at rear, house in a cloth covered clamshell box titled in gilt to the spine. The books spine panel has some loss affecting the first two letters of “The” in the title, the spine ends have been neatly repaired with new paper, also two neat repairs to minor loss and edge tears to rear cover, some marking, (see pictures) else the fragile covers are in good solid condition, internally minor corner bumping, a couple of mildly creased corners and a minor mark else contents in good condition, a generally good example of this rare variant of the British First Edition, a classic of Victorian Science Fiction
