The Time Machine
A series of three illustrations depicting H.G. Wells' The Time Machine
In the first illustration, the Time Traveler explains to his dinner guests how he has created a model time machine (which can be seen resting on the octagonal table.) The Time Traveler's arguments about time travel are met with skepticism by his guests until he pulls a small, white lever on the machine . . .
In the second, the Time Traveler presents his time machine to his guests. If you know the story, you will recall how he uses that time machine to travel 800,000 years into the future--a future that holds little hope for the human race.
And in the last, the Time Traveler explores a museum in the future along with Weena, one of the Eloi. His discoveries in the museum will allow him to reclaim his stolen time machine and his ability to return to the past.
