Of this collection of speculative essays Wells wrote: "Originally I intended Anticipations to be my sole digression from my art or trade (or what you will) of an imaginative writer." Wells regarded the work as the foundation for all his later intellectual activity. "Anticipations, begun early in 1900. and first published as a series of magazine articles, reveals his attitudes toward progress in transition from the haunting pessimism of the scientific romances to the expansive optimism of his next phase. here he outlines or suggests most of the themes that are to dominate his future work." - Williamson, H. G. Wells: Critic of Progress, p. 37. See Wells 19. See Hammond E3. See Wells Society 19. A fine copy in fine original green cloth dust jacket with printed paper label affixed to spine panel. A stunning copy. (#80281). N° de réf. du libraire 80281
