2 Wells, H. G. The Outline of History In Two Volumes
Garden City 1961 Book Club Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
H. G. Wells, just after WWI, looked at the history books and found them lacking. He focused on his own history and published his outline in 1920 to much acclaim and demand. Through the years, Wells updated and revised the outline and after his death Raymond Postgate made revisions (this edition includes these revisions). However, his outline was not without controvery. According to Wikipedia, "in 1925 G. K. Chesterton wrote The Everlasting Man at least partly in reaction to Wells. It disputes his portrayals of human life and civilization as a seamless development (via evolution) from animal life, of Jesus Christ as merely another charismatic leader, and of the Christian Church as one more religious movement like any other. " This would be a fascinating book for critical readers and Christian scholars. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 1029 pages
