This is one of Barnes & Noble's leather-bound classics. Not your normal leather but purple leather with gilt lettering and design. Unlike many books of this thickness, the font is a normal size for easy reading. Also included is an attached ribbon bookmark. The volume includes Wells's best-loved and most critically acclaimed works. In each of the seven, the author grounds his fantastical imagination in scientific fact and conjecture while lacing his narrative with vibrant action, not merely to tell a "ripping yarn," but to offer a biting critique on the world around him. The titles include: The Time Machine, The Island of Dr. Moreau, The Invisible Man, The War of the Worlds, The First Men in the Moon, The Food of the Gods, and In the Days of the Comet. Arnold Bennett said, "The strength of Mr. Wells lies in the fact that he is not only a scientist, but a most talented student of character, especially quaint character. He will not only ingeniously describe for you a scientific miracle, but he will set down that miracle in the midst of a country village, sketching with excellent humor the inn-landlady, the blacksmith, the chemist's apprentice, the doctor, and all the other persons whom the miracle affects.
