About This Item

The Lost World is a science fiction novel by Sir Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930). It was originally published serially in the Strand Magazine, in 1912, and the character of Professor Challenger was introduced in this book. It is about an expedition to a plateau in the Amazon basin of South America where prehistoric animals still survive. The novel also describes a war between indigenous people and a vicious tribe of ape-like creatures.

This is part of the Good Reads series, published by Dalmatian Press in 2004. It is a luxury edition, of sorts, with a high-quality cover, nice paper, and attractive modern type.

208 pages, with 2 illustrations.

There's a dogear on page 9; otherwise pristine condition.

Synopsis

SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE was born on May 22, 1859 in Edinburgh. He studied medicine at the University of Edinburgh and began to write stories while he was a student. Over his life he produced more than thirty books, 150 short stories, poems, plays and essays across a wide range of genres. His most famous creation is the detective Sherlock Holmes, who he introduced in his first novel A Study in Scarlet (1887). This was followed in 1889 by an historical novel, Micah Clarke . In 1893 Conan Doyle published The Final Problem in which he killed off his famous detective so that he could turn his attention more towards historical fiction. However Holmes was so popular that Conan Doyle eventually relented and published The Hound of the Baskervilles in 1901. The events of the The Hound of the Baskervilles are set before those of The Final Problem but in 1903 new Sherlock Holmes stories began to appear that revealed that the detective had not died after all. He was finally retired in 1927. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle died on July 7, 1930.
