Wells, H G
Mankind in the Making
London: Chapman & Hall, 1903. First British edition. Octavo, original blue cloth. Inscribed by the author on the half title page, "To Miss [Elizabeth] Healy. with kind regards from H.G. Wells." In very good condition with light wear to the extremities. Mankind in the Making is Wells's sequel to Anticipations. It analyzes the "process" of "man's making," i.e. "the great complex of circumstances which mould the vague possibilities of the average child into the reality of the citizen of the modern state." Taking an aggressive tone in criticizing many aspects of contemporary institutions, Wells proposed a doctrine he called "New Republicanism," which "tests all things by their effect upon the evolution of man.
