about

This book contains a fascinating essay presented by Wells to the Fabian Society in December 1905. The “unwearable boots” represent the unnecessary suffering caused by a system of privately owned capital—an imagine inspired by Wells' youth spent in an underground kitchen, the only view of the outside glimpses of people's feet on the pavement above. “This Misery of Boots” offers a fascinating insight into Wells' political beliefs and is not to be missed by collectors of his work. Herbert George Wells (1866 – 1946) was a prolific English writer who wrote in a variety of genres, including the novel, politics, history, and social commentary. Today, he is perhaps best remembered for his contributions to the science fiction genre thanks to such novels as “The Time Machine” (1895), “The Invisible Man” (1897), and “The War of the Worlds” (1898). Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly scarce and expensive. We are republishing this book now in an affordable, modern, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new biography of the author.
