This 274 page volume which runs from page 611 to page 885 of the three volume set, being an increasingly well respected and energetically applauded offering it is proudly presented with great and well deserved hubris by Hirschfeld Galleries in the publishers ORIGINAL binding. Said binding being full chocolate brown cloth with gilt titling, and it is rock solid, tight and clean, save for the most minute bumping to corners, almost not detectable. A tiny bit of dusting on top of text block, also barely noticeable. Internals clean and tight as can be. First Edition of this "survey of Wells's mental world, seen through the eyes of his alter ego William Clissold, and a summary of his theory of world revolution" [Hammond]. WILLIAM CLISSOLD was a return in some ways to the Victorian three-decker novels [the English edition was issued in three volumes]. It is lengthy, discursive, filled with passages of scientific and philosophical disquisition; at the same time, it is interesting for its depiction of the life of decaying capitalism in the middle of the 1920s. It is also important for its treatment of Odette Keun [to whom the book is dedicated], who by this time had replaced Rebecca West as Wells's mistress." Alas, when all is said and done and the proverbial geese have come home to nest or roost, or whatever, this book does have the four absolute uppermost qualities we at Hirschfeld Galleries since 1931 have always sought, and demanded, in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Another great altruistic offering opportunity for us and an even greater opportunity for self-actualized reception on your part. But enough of the lugubrious however allegorically wise jaw-jacking, enough said of the telluric parameters of select Hirschfeld Galleries' offerings such as this one which take on a life of their own and speak so very loudly for themselves. Read to learn and enjoy; go forth to share and enjoin. Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. N° de ref. de la librería 006494
