YOU KNOW MEN and women in social and business life who, to all outward appearance, are alike. But what a difference when you are in their company for more than a few minutes at a time!
One is helpless in a conversation that goes beyond the narrow circle of his own daily existence. The other always holds your attention and interest, whatever the subject may be.
Around commonplace facts he weaves romance founded seemingly upon knowledge that spans centuries. Wherever he goes he seems to have known the spot when it was in the making. His conversation illumi
nates the present with the vivid colors of the past.
How can you, whose time for libraries, museums and travel is limited, acquire the fascinating information that causes your company eagerly to be sought? How can you know the hidden story behind a prehistoric relic, or a mystifying freak of Nature?
There is no mystery to the art of being interesting. It is known to all who read an amazing story which the coupon below will bring to you for free examination.
Imagine a story that begins 10,000,000 or 100,000,000 years ago; imagine being carried through the ages from one-dramatic scene to another-as if you sat in a motion-picture theatre and saw the whole drama of the human race displayed on the screen before you-imagine the thrill of such an experience and you have some conception of
H. G. WELLS'
Outline of History
In 4 Library Size Volumes
Although more than a million copies have been sold here and abroad, virtually the only complaint we have heard of Wells' "Outline of History" has been that it was too bulky to hold comfortably while reading.
So we decided to bring it out in a form that would be not only convenient and easy to handle but as handsome a set of books and as beautifully illustrated as any History ever made. That meant starting all over from the very beginning, setting everything anew in fresh, clear type; gathering from the four corners of the earth a hundred of the most famous historical paintings for illustrations.
Mr. Wells threw himself into this task with all his marvelous enthusiasm. For a long time he had felt that certain parts of the "Outline" needed elaborating, certain other parts revision. This was his chance. Starting at the very beginning, he made changes on every single page of the text, rewrote whole chapters, added page after page of material.
Here Is Our Offer:
And now, at last, we can offer you the new, revised, illustrated history, complete in four beautiful, hand-tooled volumes, in convenient library size at 25% less than the price of the original two volume set!
Think of it! Thoroughly revised, printed from brand-new, clear, readable plates, with a hundred famous historical pictures from the great art galleries of the world, and bound up into four handtooled, library size vclumes all for a fourth less than the ordinary two-volume set would cost you even now in any book-store!
And the Review of Reviews, Too!
Wells begins with the dawn of time. Before there were men. Before there were reptiles. In broad, magnificent strokes he paints the picture, bringing you straight down to today. He shows the thread of human purpose binding men together the world over from one age to another.
And where Wells stops, the Review of Reviews takes up the story. It ties together the events of today the world over, shows their relation one to another, gives you a background of facts for your daily news.
Only One Condition We MakeThere is but one condition that you mail the attached coupon at once. Such an unusual offer as this cannot last long. You must act at once.
Send the coupon without money. If for any reason you are dissatisfied with the History, if it doesn't seem to you the utmost of book value and satisfaction, send it back and cancel your order. There'll be no quibbling - no questions asked. But mail the coupon now-today- before it is too late!
