Soon the worthless substance is turned into a formidable fortune as society becomes convinced of the merits of Tono-Bungay through a combination of skilled advertising and public credulity."--Goodreads
The outline of history : being a plain history of life and mankind by H. G Wells( Book )

436 editions published between 1919 and 2017 in 5 languages and held by 7,036 WorldCat member 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 wheels of chance, a bicycling idyll by H. G Wells( )

40 editions published between 1896 and 2017 in English and held by 3,066 WorldCat member 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. [Publit]
