Fiction by H. G. Wells, "The Research Magnificent" 1922 Vintage Book

In this Novel of Ideas, Wells attempts to draw a picture of a man determined to live the noble life - to put behind him all the petty things which keep a man from evolving. But it is not just the outer world that gets in the way. To Wells, or at least to his protagonist in this novel, these things that impede mankind are, fear, sex, jealousy, and prejudice; under this last category are (as Wells states it in the novel) "the most remarkable array of influences, race-hatred, national suspicion, the evil side of patriotism, religious and social intolerance, every social consequence of muddle headedness, every dividing force indeed except the purely personal dissensions between man and man." A fascinating novel, this is certainly Wells all the way. No other man could have penned it.

The book first came out in 1915, but this is a later printing from 1922; it's in lovely condition.
