New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1924 28 volumes, octavo. Finely bound by Stikeman Co. in blue half morocco, titles and floral decoration to spines gilt, two raised bands, blue cloth boards, marbled endpapers, top edges gilt, others untrimmed.The Atlantic Edition, limited to 1050 numbered sets signed by the author of which this is number 618. This is the best edition by a margin of the works of H. G. Wells. Scribners offered the set in regular cloth bindings but also as here in a spectacular binding done by the best American binders of their day. The cost presumably was prohibitive and very few sets seem to have been so bound.
