~ BEFORE KING KONG THERE WAS THE LOST WORLD ~ !! SIR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE'S EXCITING ADVENTURE SAGA ACCOMPANIED BY OVER 75 STILLS AND IMAGES FROM THE FIRST ANIMATED DINOSAUR FEATURE FILM !! From London's elite halls of scientific learning to the mosquito infested jungles of deepest South America, a band of intrepid explorers embark on the most improbable mission of the early 20th century - to prove the existence of living relics of the Jurassic age. Stranded on a lost plateau, four men battle the elements, primitive hordes of sub-humans and dinosaurs. This edition of Doyle's groundbreaking novel of 1912 is accompanied by numerous scenes from the equally groundbreaking film of 1925, produced by First National Pictures - the first feature film to use stop-motion dinosaurs as a key plot element and the first version of many cinematic renditions of Doyle's novel. Groundbreaking special effects were designed by the early master of the form, Willis H. O'Brien, later to achieve fame for his work on KING KONG, the epic giant-ape-on-the-loose story. With over 75 photos and illustrations!!! This is the complete novel with accompanying pictures and more. It is the first volume in a series of Silent-Photoplay Editions based upon famous films of the silent era.

Review:

Forget the Michael Crichton book (and Spielberg movie) that copied the title. This is the original: the terror-adventure tale of The Lost World. Writing not long after dinosaurs first invaded the popular imagination, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle spins a yarn about an expedition of two scientists, a big-game hunter, and a journalist (the narrator) to a volcanic plateau high over the vast Amazon rain forest. The bickering of the professors (a type Doyle knew well from his medical training) serves as witty contrast to the wonders of flora and fauna they encounter, building toward a dramatic moonlit chase scene with a Tyrannosaurus Rex. And the character of Professor George E. Challenger is second only to Sherlock Holmes in the outrageous force of his personality: he's a big man with an even bigger ego, and if you can grit your teeth through his racist behavior toward Native Americans, he's a lot of fun.
