THE NEW AND REVISED OUTLINE OF HISTORY BEING A PLAIN HISTORY OF LIFE AND MANKIND bY H.G. WELLS. COPYRIGHT. 1920, 1951, by H.G.Wells. Published by Garden City Publishing Co., Inc. Garden City, New York. Size: Approximate: 8 1/2 " x 6" x 2". A DELUXE EDITION COMPLETE IN ONE VOLUME WITH MAPS AND PLANS MADE SPECIALLY FOR THIS WORK by J.F. HORRABIN (plus of 150 nice illustrations). 39 Chapters with 1191 pages plus Index. Illustrated Condition: Used: Little wear at back and corners, spine is solid, cover has staining (white on front and back) and a few bumps. No dedications or writing on any pages, some browning due to age. Paper has tear at title page flex joint but cloth joint is still good. I have not seen any other tears.

The illustrations of Horrabin are very interesting and cutes, some with woodcut appereances. This is a fantastic and very large historic essay from the "War of the Worlds" creator (and father of the sci-fi literary style) talking about the total outline of the Earth history. This edition is very attractive because is a single and complete volume, while the other knowed editions have two or four volumes..
