The outline of history, being a plain history of life and mankind by H. G Wells( Book )
353 editions published between 1919 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 6,730 libraries worldwide
Herbert George Wells is perhaps most well known today for his science-fiction novels but it was "The Outline of History" that initiated a new era of popular history. Although the harshest critics were from those who disagreed on ideological grounds, it's difficult to dismiss the depth of Wells' insights and prophetic accuracy. E.M. Forster and Beatrice Webb both praised the book on publication. It was this very book to which G.K. Chesterton responds in "The Everlasting Man" as does Hilaire Bellock in "A Companion to Mr. Wells's "Outline of History." "In re-living the entire life of Mankind as a single imaginative experience, Mr. Wells was achieving something which they themselves would hardly have dared to attempt ... In fact, the purpose and value of Mr. Wells's book seem to have been better appreciated by the general public than by the professional historians of the day
The war of the worlds by H. G Wells( Sound Recording )
197 editions published between 1938 and 2014 in 3 languages and held by 3,313 libraries worldwide

With horrifyingly advanced machines of destruction, they began their inexorable conquest. The war for Earth seemed destined to be ... but was it?

"When penniless businessman Mr Bedford retreats to the Kent coast to write a play, he meets by chance the brilliant Dr Cavor, an absent-minded scientist on the brink of developing a material that blocks gravity. Cavor soon succeeds in his experiments, only to tell a stunned Bedford the invention makes possible one of the oldest dreams of humanity: a journey to the moon. With Bedford motivated by money and Cavor by the desire for knowledge, the two embark on the expedition. But neither are prepared for what they find - a world of freezing nights, boiling days and sinister alien life, on which they may be trapped forever."--Jacket

The shape of things to come by H. G Wells( Book )
118 editions published between 1933 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 1,848 libraries worldwide
"When Dr Philip Raven, an intellectual working for the League of Nations, dies in 1930 he leaves behind a powerful legacy an unpublished dream book'. Inspired by visions he has experienced for many years, it appears to be a book written far into the future: a history of humanity from the date of his death up to 2105. The Shape of Things to Come provides this history of the future', an account that was in some ways remarkably prescient predicting climatic disaster and sweeping cultural changes, including a Second World War, the rise of chemical warfare, and political instabilities in the Middle East."--Back cover

The new Machiavelli by H. G Wells( Book )
155 editions published between 1900 and 2011 in 3 languages and held by 1,405 libraries worldwide
"A successful author and liberal MP with a loving and benevolent wife, Richard Remington appears to be a man to envy. But underneath his superficial contentment, he is far from happy with either his marriage or the politics of his party. The New Machiavelli describes the disarray into which his life is thrown when he meets the young and beautiful Isabel Rivers and becomes tormented by desire. At first, he struggles to resist and remain focused upon his familiar political, personal, and social life. But, as he soon learns, it is harder than he could have imagined to turn his back on love. Based on Wells's own experiences, this is a vivid and unfailingly candid account of the damage wrought by a scandalous society affair and the overwhelming power of passion."--Back cover

Terrified, he escapes from his chamber, seeking solace-- only to realize that not everyone adores him. In fact, some wish to destroy him."--Back cover
Marriage by H. G Wells( Book )
117 editions published between 1825 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 913 libraries worldwide
When it came to holy matrimony, writer H.G. Wells had a rather interesting personal history. He married his first cousin, soon left her for one of his students, and then had multiple affairs (and children) with important female thinkers and writers over the course of the rest of his lifetime. With that in mind, Wells brings a unique twist to this relatively straightforward take on Edwardian morals and mores in marriage

The secret places of the heart by H. G Wells( Book )
73 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 4 languages and held by 739 libraries worldwide
H.G. Wells is best remembered as a central figure in the development of the science fiction genre and as the creator of such works as The Time Machine, The Island of Doctor Moreau, and The War of the Worlds. However, much of his literary output was more conventional in nature, and he published a number of novels dealing with interpersonal relationships and social themes. Many critics regard The Secret Places of the Heart as a heavily autobiographical account of one of Wells' failed love affairs
Anticipations of the reaction of mechanical and scientific progress upon human life and thought by H. G Wells( Book )
119 editions published between 1900 and 2016 in 9 languages and held by 678 libraries worldwide

The door in the wall, and other stories by H. G Wells( Book )
35 editions published between 1911 and 2016 in English and held by 655 libraries worldwide
Widely recognized as one of the key figures in the development of the science fiction and fantasy genres, H.G. Wells was a prolific writer who produced hundreds of short and long works in these styles. The tales collected in The Door in the Wall and Other Stories span Wells' early career and offer a satisfying cross-section of his work
War and the future : Italy, France, and Britain at war by H. G Wells( Book )
31 editions published between 1907 and 2016 in English and French and held by 264 libraries worldwide
War and the future, subtitled "Italy, France, and Britain at War," was published in 1917. It contains first-hand observations and reflections on the long term impact and meaning of World War I. Wells examines the effects of warfare, especially of tank and aerial bombing, and discusses weapons control and the creation of a world state
The wheels of chance by H. G Wells( Book )
56 editions published between 1896 and 2016 in 5 languages and held by 252 libraries worldwide
Although H. G. Wells is best known for his science fiction stories he wrote in many genres including history, and social commentaries. The Wheels of Chance was written when the bicycle was beginning to become very popular (1890 -1905) and saw bicycles becoming a part of social changes in England. People could move quickly and rigid class structure was beginning to crumble. This is the story of a down-on-his-luck draper's assistant who takes a second-hand bicycle on a tour through the English countryside. He meets a young woman on the run from her seducer in addition to a string of other amusing characters
