1 WELLS, H.G Things to Come - A Film Story Based on the Material Contained in His History of the Future “The Shape of Things to Come”
London Cresset Press 1935 
First Edition. First Printing. Signed and inscribed in black ink by H.G. Wells to the manager of the Leicester Square and Lyceum theaters: “To William Yorkham, who bridges the ages between the Lyceum & Leicester Square. H.G. Wells” and with Well's flamboyant paraph florish. It was at the Leicester Square Theater that Things To Come had its world premiere on February 21, 1936. With light foxing to the top edge and endpapers, else a near fine copy in the original cloth binding in a very good dust jacket with a few small chips and tears. The screenplay written by H.G. Wells for the William Cameron Menzies directed British production starring Raymond Massey resulting in the first science fiction classic film of the sound era. Menzies, perhaps the finest production designer in film history, created a striking vision of the future that is still arresting today. Very rare signed by Wells, the modern father of science fiction.
