Notes

First edition in book form, first impression, of Conan Doyle's classic prehistoric adventure novel, following its serialization in the Strand Magazine earlier that year. "His sense of the glory and nonsense of scientific advance found happy resolution in The Lost World (1912), where academic vendetta at its most ludicrous continually punctuates a thrilling quest to establish the survival of dinosaurs" (ODNB).
