The Land Of Mist
New York, George H. Doran Company 1926., 1926. First US Edition. 8vo. Near fine in publisher's green cloth with titles in black to spine and front board. Some residue remains of a white paper label that appears to have been fixed to the lower edge of the front board, aprt from this residue and a slight bump to the upper right hand corner the book is exceptionally clean and lovely. Slight spotting to the page edges, the book is clad in a lovely example of the fragile dustwrapper, wear to extremities and chipping to the top right hand corner of the front panel and to the base of the spine, otherwise unfaded and bright, some slight toning to the green and cream rear panel and spine but the virtues far outweigh the shortcomings. Scarce in the wrapper and even scarcer in a wrapper that doesn't look like it heaved itself down the Amazon wracked with yellow fever and babbling about dinosaurs. The third story in the series featuring Professor George Challenger, one of the most memorable characters in speculative fiction. Doyle's other great character beside Sherlock Holmes, Challenger had already starred in two novels 'The Lost World' (1912), and 'The Poison Belt' (1913) and would later appear in 'When the World Screamed' and 'The Disintegration Machine'; Brilliant, witty, insufferable, and blessed with a booming voice and a huge black beard, Challenger is an eccentric and able champion of the human race. Given the author's preoccupation with Spritism at this time, 'The Land of Mist' turned out to be a psychic adventure. Green and Gibson; A Bibliography of Arthur Conan Doyle.
