When The War of the Worlds was first released in 1897 is was in a serialized format (common at the time) in Pearson’s Magazine and this first edition differs from the final published novel that would come out a year later. We have obtained first editions of the story and these have been used in the set. You will find cut images, covers, text selections and original Warwick Globe fold out illustration cards.
Each Factory set costs £27.00 ($40.00) and if you order 2 you get free shipping!
