Captain's Library: THE TIME MACHINE Part 1

In the 1950s-60s, George Pal was the producer of high-end science fiction and fantasy flicks.
His name on the opening credits assured audiences of state-of-the-art (and often Oscar-winning) special effects, clean storytelling, and a respect for the stories his films were adapted from.
1960s The Time Machine was no exception.
We'll find out...tomorrow!
You'll note the shots we see of the Time Machine itself, as well as George's miniature model don't match the props seen in the film, though the likenesses of actors Rod Taylor, Alan Young and others are pretty recognizable!
Pencils by Alex Toth.
However, the inking is different enough from his usual work of the period, that I'm not certain it is him, even though most sources attribute it to Toth.
In fact, it looks like a couple of different inkers do different sections of the book.
