9780099582823: King Solomon's Mines (Vintage Classics)

Gathered together are three classic adaptations behind a Millar Watt cover: King Solomon's Mines, Allan Quatermain and Montezuma's Daughter, all written by "the father of the lost world genre". King Solomon's Mines is one of the most famous of all adventure novels: adventurer Allan Quatermain is asked to help find his friend's brother who is presumed lost deep in the unexplored interior of Africa whilst looking for the legendary King Solomon's Mines. The artwork is some of Bill Baker's best and one wonders why the equally talented C L Doughty took over part-way through. Allan Quatermain: in mourning for his only son, Quatermain persuades his friends (jncluding Zulu chief Umslopogas) to accompany him into Maasai territory. Travelling by canoe, they find themselves in the kingdom of Zu-Vendis, a country ruled by an isolated warlike white race. The artwork is in line & wash by Mike Hubbard. Montezuma's Daughter: superbly adapted and penned by Jesus Blasco, Thomas Wingfield sets off to avenge the murder of his mother. After a brush with the Spanish Inquisition, shipwreck and slavery, his search leads him to the shores of Mexico where he is captured by the Aztecs.He is taken to the emperor who will decide his fate. Then the Spaniards arrive.

Review:

"One of the great page-turners in English literature" (John Sutherland Guardian)

"I can distinctly remember handling the book as if it might somehow give me, a boy in Africa, magical access to the African adventures it contained. It still does now. I need only pick up this book and, like the door to Solomon's treasure chamber, a mass of stone rises from the floor and vanishes into the rock above" (Giles Foden Guardian)

Book Description:

Allan Quatermain is a Victorian Indiana Jones - he triumphs over deserts, snowy mountains, tribal warfare and witches, and unearths the mythical treasure of King Solomon's mines.

Book Description Vintage Publishing, United Kingdom, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Reprint. 194 x 128 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. This faithful but unpretending record of a remarkable adventure is hereby respectfully dedicated by the narrator to all the big boys and little boys who read it. I offer apologies for my blunt way of writing. I can but say in excuse of it that I am more accustomed to handling a rifle than a pen. This is the strange history of our journey into the heart of Kukuanaland; a trek into the interior of the dark continent to find a lost friend and discover the diamond mines of King Solomon. In the course of a long life of close shaves, I never had such shaves as those which I have recently experienced. - Allan Quatermain, of Durban, Natal, Gentleman.
