Read an 1898 first edition of The War of the Worlds
Thanks to the Internet Archive, you can read a digitized copy of a first edition of The War of the Worlds, the classic science fiction novel by British author H.G. Wells. Published in London by William Heinemann in 1898, this copy doesn't have the original binding, but it does appear to have all of the pages, including a neat 16-page publisher's catalogue inserted at the rear of the book. Check it out!
