- Bestselling Illustrated Classics: THE LOST WORLD
DetailsThe restless, questing intellect of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spurred him far beyond the ingenious puzzles he constructed for Sherlock Holmes. In The Lost World, Doyle, a devotee of the occult and fantastic tales of adventure and discovery, introduces his readers to Professor Challenger, an eccentric paleontologist, on his suspense-filled search for pre-historic creatures in the wilds of the Amazon. Professor Challenger's doughty troupe inclues a skeptical colleague, Professor Summerlee, the cool-headed, plucky sportsman Lord John Ruxton, and the narrator, the intrepid reporter Edward Malone. When their bridge to civilization collapses, the explorers find themselves marooned among dinosaurs and savage ape-people.Originally published in 1912, the imaginative fantasy unfolds with humor and a good-natured satirical eye for pedantry. Fans of Arthur Conan Doyle will delight in this rare gem, as will dinosaur fanciers and adventure story aficionados.Dover (1998) unabridged republication of a standard edition.ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Sir Arthur Ignatius Conan Doyle was a British writer best known for his detective fiction featuring the character Sherlock Holmes.
