About this Item

First Edition. Minor soiling to covers. Minor wear to edges. Some foxing to page edges. Original red cloth with gilt titles. Title page does include quotes from G.H. Lewis and William James. First Edition, considered to have preceded the English edition (which is dated 1911). This is an autobiographical tale about a successful politician fleeing from a claustrophobic marriage. Wells had a tough time finding a publisher: everyone knew about Wells's recent affair with Amber Reeves, and it was obvious to publishers that she was represented in the book by Isabel Rivers. Wells also provided a harsh portrayal of Sidney and Beatrice Webb (as Oscar and Altiora Bailey) -- Wells's former Fabian cohorts had been close to Amber's family, and thus did not approve. THE NEW MACHIAVELLI furthermore generally attacked the prevailing Victorian code of sexual morality. Bookseller Inventory # 0012824
