Forgotten book of the day: The Wreck of the South Pole
Forgotten book of the day is The Wreck of the South Pole and Other Strange Tales by Charles Curtz Hahn. A novel from 1899 published by Street & Smith in New York. There is a lost race of humanoid in the Antarctic that possess telepathic powers and advanced technology. A rare book and I love that pictorial cloth binding. Lost race novels were big business at the end of the Victorian era with real-life colonial explorers constantly ploughing through jungles, deserts and mountain ranges.
