London, Methuen, 1895. First edition, first impression. Hardback. A very good copy. 32pp catalogue dated Sept 1895 to rear. Wells' first collection, gathering 15 short pieces of fantasy and sf, mostly published earlier in the Pall Mall magazines. Dulling to the spine, some bumping to the edges and corners, a reader's lean, owner's inscription to the title page. [9571, Hyraxia Books].
