About This Item

London: George Newnes, 1901. First English Edition; first binding. An extraordinary copy in the rare dust jacket. Aside from minor dust soiling of the edges and slight bumping at the foot of the spine, the book is as fine and bright as one might expect from the more than one hundred years of protection afforded by the jacket, which is virtually free of wear and has slight dust soiling to the spine of the dust jacket,

Synopsis

The First Men in the Moon is a 1901 scientific romance novel by the British author H. G. Wells. The novel tells the story of a journey to the moon undertaken by the two protagonists, the impoverished businessman Mr Bedford and the brilliant but eccentric scientist Dr. Cavor.
