The Camford Visitation

(1937)
A novel by

 
 
A book that warns the educational community ("Cam[bridge/Ox]ford") of impending war and world destruction, and of "Education's" lack of action. The device H. G. employed to project his own arguments.. was that of a utopian ventriloquist, the voice of the Visitant from space who insists that Camford stands both at the head of education and in its way. [Mackenzie] The Voice of the Visitant is of course ignored. So was Wells's book: Methuen printed 10,000 copies but had sold only 2,200 on the eve of the war, and ultimately destroyed 5,000 copies that had not yet been bound up.
