London: Cassell and Co., 1919. Green cloth, stamped in blind, lettered in gilt. Lower joint has external surface splits, binding dull, internally clean and bright. First edition. From the library of Siegfried Sassoon, with the posthumous monogram library dispersal label. In June of 1917, Sassoon sent a copy of his statement against the war to Wells, among others, and Wells was supportive. Sassoon visited him in 1922, recording that "I am grateful to (and full of admiration for) the bristling pugnacious little man for the way he succeeds in influencing (and creating) public opinion in the direction of sanity...," and they remained in contact in later years. Wells inscribed a number of books to Sassoon -- the majority of them non-fiction -- but not this fictional take-off on the Book of Job. BLEILER, p. 205. (Inventory #: WRCLIT76521)
