WELCOME!

This site presents Volumes 1 and 2 of
"The Outline of History"  by H G Wells et al, as originaly owned by Mr P Howell. These are the 1919 Library issue, and are significant in that they are extensively annotated in the margins, in ink, and signed "H G W".

There are 44 annotations.  Some of these annotations have been researched and they appear in the 1930 public issues of these volumes. We present all of the annotations here. Please call us if you want to know more. See "Contact us".

These volumes are dated in INK (see the images below) 1919, and it is assumed that these volumes are of the library edition issued in 1919, shortly after the completion of the issue of the 24 separate texts that went to make up the first public presentation.(See "Colour Plates" for copies of the cover, and of the ad, of the first of these magazines))
