A classic with 16 illustrations from a first edition.
SeaWolf Press is proud to offer another book in its H. G. Wells 100th Anniversary Collection. Each book in the collection contains the text, illustrations, and cover from the first or early edition (but it is not a photocopy.)
The War in the Air, a military science fiction novel by H. G. Wells, is like many of Wells's works notable for its prophetic ideas, images, and concepts—in this case, the use of the aircraft for the purpose of warfare. Written before World War I and airplane warfare, the novel eerily predicts the following World Wars. In the story, German airships attack New York and reduce it to rubble. What follows is total war around the world as Asian countries also attack with aircraft and world civilization collapses.
This version has:
- 16 original illustrations from the 1908 first edition.
- Text that has been proofread to avoid errors common in other versions.
- A beautiful cover that replicates the 1908 first edition.
- The complete text in an easy-to-read font similar to the original.
