Catalogue Note

RARE IN SUCH CONDITION. The Invisible Man, the tale of a scientist who turns himself invisible but is unable to reverse the process, was first printed serially in Pearson's Magazine in June and July 1897. Written shortly after the successful publication of The Time Machine, the story has been adapted numerous times for film and television. "Boldly melodramatic and intellectually provocative, Well's early scientific romances...remain unsurpassed for their imagination and visionary power" (ODNB).
