London: Hodder and Stoughton, 1913. [Strange tale] FIRST EDITION. Crown octavo (20 x 13cm), pp.vii; 199; [1], blank. With sixteen full-page black and white plates drawn by Harry Rowntree. Publisher's mid-blue pictorial cloth, titled in gilt to the spine, tooled in black to upper. Some light spotting within, no inscriptions, two very faint mongram stamps to half title, binding lightly handled, backstrip a touch toned. Very good indeed. The second Professor Challenger fantasy, of which fewer copies than "The Lost World" - published the year before - were printed. A first-rate sequel which continues the adventures of one of the most memorable characters in speculative fiction. Brilliant, witty, insufferable, and blessed with a booming voice and a huge black beard, Professor George Challenger is an eccentric and able champion of the human race. Item #66958
