373 pp , 16mo (6 1/8" H), thin burgundy leather over card covers/spine - gold lettering and decoration on spine, top edge gilt - in slipcase. Burgundy endpapers, integral ribbon bookmark, sepiatone illustrations, including frontispiece. "The Essex summer of 1914 is long and hot, with the brightness of that sunshine one sees at times at the edge of a thunderstorm. At Matching's Easy the famous writer Mr Britling harangues his American guest, drives his car furiously into hedges of honeysuckle and dog-rose, rounds up his weekend visitors for day-long hockey matches and night-long parties and makes moonlight dashes across the country to his demanding mistress. But at night he lies awake and broods, and the storm begins to break: Germany marches into Belgium, the shadow of the trenches moves nearer to those he loves, and Mr Britling's irrepressible spirit is thrown into darkness and confusion. The slaughter may be across the Channel, but in this intensely moving novel, written at the height of the conflict, H.G. Wells exposes the pain at home - the heartache of Mr Britling in his study, seeing it through." Previous owner's name and date (1936) in ink on rear of frontispiece - minor ink offset on adjacent page, minor wear at top/bottom of spine and at corners. Slipcase has very light corner wear, minor rubbing, tiny dent on one side panel.
