This is the annotated edition including the rare biographical essay by Edwin E. Slosson called "H. G. Wells - A Major Prophet Of His Time".
The romance of world history is Mr. Wells' theme. Shorn of elaboration and complication, and illustrated with over two hundred photographs and drawings, this new book forms an interesting, informing and authoritative story of man through the ages. The book is meant to be read straightforwardly almost as a novel is read. It gives in the most general way an account of our present knowledge of history shorn of elaboration and everything has been done to make it clear and vivid ... to meet the needs of the busy general reader, too driven to study the maps and the time charts of other works.
