You are bidding on a first edition book published in 1931 by Doubleday, Doran & Company, New York. It is volume one of H.G. Wells' The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind. Apparently Wells believed that all a person needed to know could be found in history, biology, economics. There are 454 pages of text divided into nine chapters: How Man Became An Economic Animal; How Man Has Learnt to Think and Gain a Mastery Over Force and Matter; The Conquest of Distance; The Conquest of Hunger (How Mankind is Fed); The Conquest of Climate (How Mankind is Clothed and Housed); How Goods are Bought and Sold; How Work is Organized; Why People Work; How Work is Paid For and Wealth Accumulated. Also included are several pages of black and white photos printed on glossy stock. Condition is excellent and evidence of use - if any - is minimal. The pages are clean and tightly bound. Some light cover wear is noted but it is very minor. This fascinating book would make a terrific addition to your library.
Serious bidders only. Please check out my auctions for designer clothing and accessories, vintage and decorative collectibles and other great stuff. New items are listed weekly. Good luck and happy bidding!
