The Research Magnificent.London: Macmillan and Co., Limited, 1915 Stock Code: 87347
First edition, first impression. Scarce in the dust jacket. The Research Magnificent was written during Wells's affair with Rebecca West, and some of its themes may have been attempts to address that troubled relationship.
Octavo. Original green cloth elaborately blocked in blind, titles to spine and front board. With the dust jacket.
Lightly rubbed at the tips. An excellent, fresh copy in the rubbed and partially tanned jacket with chips and closed tears, particularly to the spine panel.
