The creator of Sherlock Holmes dabbled in many other genres including science fiction, and in this 1912 fantasy he transported readers to the wilds of the Amazon for a rollicking adventure among dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. The Lost World is the first and best of Arthur Conan Doyle's five stories about the eccentric paleontologist Professor Challenger. This splendid hardcover edition reprints the tale as it first appeared in The Strand Magazine and includes the original brush-and-wash illustrations by Golden Age masters Harry Rountree. Doyle, using his Maple White alias, provides artwork as well.
A Calla Edition, originally published by The Strand Magazine, London, 1912.
