The Outline of History, Being a Plain History of Life and Mankind by H. G. Wells, with the advice and editorial help of Mr. Ernest Barker, Sir H. H. Johnston, Sir E. Ray Lankester, and Professor Gilbert Murray. First edition, in magazine format which have been gathered and bound. 24 quarto issues (complete series). 780 pages, including index. 47 color and miscellaneous black and white illustrations throughout. Vellum binding with handwritten lettering on spine. Shows light rubbing and minor, even soiling. There is a one-inch split at the top edge of the front joint and a two-inch separation on the top of the rear joint that starts as a split, but ends as a tear. Previous owner's bookplate on front free endpaper. Very good. This first printing of the classic original magazine series was published fortnightly, from November 1919 to November 1920. Dissatisfied with contemporary history textbooks, Wells wrote his own outline in an attempt to rectify the problem and to educate and illuminate his audience on the progress of mankind and civilization. The serial was an immediate success and led to the publication of the work in book form in 1920. That two-volume edition became a massive bestseller and sold over a million copies in its first year. I believe this to be Wells' own pre-publication copy with dozens of hand written notes and errata - pencilled into the margins and typed on onion skin paper often marked H.G.W. throughout.
