I managed to find "The Time Machine" (1931 edition, as in the TVM) on ebay a few years ago when I was still working. Whoever owned this book over the years took loving care of it. Even its protective hard cardboard jacket is almost like new! I got lucky; it had a "Buy It Now" button and the price was extremely reasonable. I almost got "Doctor in the House", again from ebay while I was still working, but that one was an auction only item and sadly I was outbid. (Can't win 'em all.)

Thanks Rob ;D
why doesn't the Guide mention them? - Oh, it's not very accurate.
Oh? - I'm researching the new edition.

well, it's not quite right, but it's the correct age if you were looking for one:

Thank you Raskin.

As you say not perfect but very close.

I will include the images here for reference as it is only missing the words "His Famous Novel"

The War of the Worlds

By H.G. Wells
Published by Heinemann, 1973
143 Pages

relevant eBay description : 1973 Heinemann edition of The War of the Worlds, one of the more obscure hardcover reissues of this sf classic and definitely a bit of a prize.

If someone wants to make a mock-up these images may help.

I haven't found yet.


We have a copy of that but I think it's it's a handout from NHS/Government.

Thanks domvar! So it is from the NHS!

Caretaker Rule Book - Paradise Towers (1987)
Green book with a red pen on the back.
I'm sure I used to own that very pen years ago - it may be in the house somewhere in a drawer.
It had a clip for the pen and a coiled cord like the type that they used to use on Telephones.

:D

I realise the journal is on screen ever so briefly but its blatantly a black paper with silver pen binder, sheesh.

Oh! Oh! And the millions of others the Doctor glimpses through in "Castrovalva".
