Arthur Conan Doyle, “The Lost World”


The novel that has marked the start of a long and diverse series of imitations and adaptations. English original edition-

In The Lost World (1912) Doyle, a devotee of the occult and fantastic tales of adventure and discovery, introduces his readers to Professor Challenger, an eccentric paleontologist, on his suspense-filled search for prehistoric creatures in the wilds of the Amazon. Professor Challenger’s doughty troupe includes a skeptical colleague, Professor Summerlee; the cool-headed, plucky sportsman Lord John Roxton; and the narrator, the intrepid reporter Edward Malone. When their bridge to civilization collapses, the explorers find themselves marooned among dinosaurs and savage ape-people.

The novel marked the start of a long and diverse series of imitations and adaptations – including Michael Crichton’s The Lost World (published in 1995 as a sequel to his 1990 Jurassic Park), which partly inspired the famous film by Steven Spielberg.


Arthur Conan Doyle (1859-1930) was born in Edinburgh and took a degree in medicine at Edinburgh University before becoming a doctor in Southsea. He began writing detective stories to supplement his income and A Study in Scarlet (1887) introduced his finest creation, the hawk-eyed detective, Sherlock Holmes.
