The Time Traveler's Story and a part of the introductory conversation appeared as a serial in the New Review. Several descriptive passages in the story had previously appeared in dialogue form in the National Observer, and the explanation of the "principles" of Time Traveling given in this book is inserted from the latter paper, I desire to make the usual acknowledgments.
