1931 THE TIME MACHINE H.G. Wells Slipcase Institute Of Graphic Arts Keepsake
This is keepsake #79 presented by the Institute of Graphic Arts to its members according to the included document dated 1946. Also included is an article about the artist who designed the font face for the book. The novel is H.G. Wells' classic science fiction novel, "The Time Machine." The book, printed by Random House in 1931, comes in a slipcase and is in the English language. The bottom and back spine of the slipcase needs more glue.
The novel is considered one of the earliest works of science fiction and the progenitor of the “time travel” subgenre. Wells advanced his social and political ideas in this narrative of a nameless Time Traveller who is hurtled into the year 802,701 by his elaborate ivory, crystal, and brass contraption. Wells' novel 'The Time Machine' conveys an essential message: class divisions must be removed before mankind wrecks itself. While best known for his science fiction novels, it was actually H.G. Wells' non-fiction that got his books thrown into the fire by the Nazis.
