Title: THE PLATTNER STORY AND OTHERS
Publication Date: 1897
Edition: First Edition.
THE PLATTNER STORY AND OTHERS, Methuen, 1897, first edition, spine somewhat faded with dulled but still easily readable lettering, else a tight vg copy of what is most certainly among the authors most difficult first editions to locate. (The previously published work of Wells was THE ISLAND OF DR. MOREAU, which was met with such horror by the English reading public, that Wells' entire writing career seemed to be jeopardized. Hence his next publication, this very title, a collection of some his best short stories, was issued in a small quantity and sold poorly to a highly suspect and weary audience).
