    More Information: A. Conan Doyle. The Lost World. London: Hodder and Stoughton, [1912]. First edition. Octavo. 319, [1] pages. Photographic frontispiece and seven additional tipped-in plates; two full-page, hand-drawn map "facsimiles." Blue cloth; front ruled and lettered in white with gilt vignette of Professor Challenger; spine stamped in gilt. Some rubbing, minor soiling to binding; hinge and edge wear; bumped corners; backstrip very faintly toned; small chips out of white ruling. Toning, foxing to edges of text block and endpapers; award slip from The National Shorthand Association tipped to front free endpaper. Consistent, mostly marginal, foxing throughout text block. A few plates beginning to come detached from bottom. Good. "Despite such anachronisms as cavemen living with dinosaurs, both Challenger and the credibility of the detail strengthen the narrative, making it the classic of its type"--Anatomy of Wonder. Barron, Anatomy of Wonder, 1-31; Goldscheider, Conan Doyle Bibliography, 477.
