For this title, a FINE example in original publisher's red cloth, rarely found without spine fade and outer hinges unworn. This is the JOHN QUINN copy (bookplate) with a note on the front free endpaper reading: "Fire destroyed the greater part of this edition; the work is quite scarce and is rarely found in good condition." Boldly SIGNED by H. G. Wells on the title page. [WITH:] an original photograph showing Wells signing this exact copy at the 1937 Boston Book Fair along with a newspaper clipping of this exact photograph. LOVE AND MR. LEWISHAM was Wells' first novel with strong personal content; critics have called it his "Jude The Obscure" given its uncompromising social statements about education and marriage.
