Description :

Octavo, pp. [1-4] [i-ii] iii-vi [vii-viii] 1-307 [308: blank] [309-312: ads], flyleaves at front and rear, title page printed in red and black, original green cloth, front and spine panels stamped in gold. First U.S. edition. A highly important presentation copy from Wells to his friend and fellow Socialist Mrs. Pember Reeves, mother of Amber Reeves (1887-1981) who bore a daughter 31 December 1909 fathered out of wedlock by H. G. Wells: "Mrs. Pember Reeves / From the Author / to be read through from beginning to end / (and please will she think better of him)." Wells wrote the roman à clef, ANN VERONICA based on his relationship with Amber Reeves. The novel created a sensation when published in the fall of 1909 because of the feminist sensibilities of the heroine and also because of the affair Wells was having with Amber Reeves, the woman who inspired the novel's eponymous character. Wells later wrote that while the character of Ann Veronica was based on Amber, the character he believed came closest to her was Amanda in his 1915 novel THE RESEARCH MAGNIFICENT. "FIRST & LAST THINGS was to remain, along with THE GREAT STATE (1912) and two or three of the series of articles on politics, as Wells's standard of behaviour and thinking through much of the rest of his life. Remarkably, the book has received little attention from Wells scholars and biographers . It is one of H. G. Wells's most important books, and provides a clear statement of the role of the individual, of the self and its relationship to the group, to the species, to the rushing future." - Smith, H. G. Wells: Desperately Mortal, pp. 122-27. FIRST & LAST THINGS was fairly extensively revised for a 1917 edition, revised again for a 1929 edition published as part of the "Thinker's Library," and, during World War II, the "Thinker's Library" version was replaced by THE CONQUEST OF TIME (1942), a slighter volume on similar ideas. Wells 36. Hammond E8. Wells Society 37. Slight spine lean, cloth lightly worn at spine ends and corner tips, several scuffs to rear cover, a very good copy. A nice association copy of a major work in which Wells set down his philosophy and standards of behavior for himself and humanity. (#149940). N° de réf. du libraire

Description du livre On Demand Publishing, LLC-Create Space, 2017. Paperback. État : New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.First and Last Things is a 1908 work of philosophy by H. G. Wells setting forth his beliefs in four books entitled Metaphysics, Of Belief, Of General Conduct, and Some Personal Things. Parts of the book were published in the Independent Magazine in July and August 1908. Wells revised the book extensively in 1917, in response to his religious conversion, but later published a further revision in 1929 that restored much of the book to its earlier form. Its main intellectual influences are Darwinism and certain German thinkers Wells had read, such as August Weismann. The pragmatism of William James, who had become a friend of Wells, was also an influence. N° de réf. du libraire APC9781974221653
