Bennet, Robert Ames: Thyra, A Romance of the Polar Pit, V1, 13 Jul 2011
This is the epub version of the prc ebook I submitted here in 2009. This version has 6 of the 7 illustrations by Blummenschein (my copy of the book was missing the frontispiece and I don't know where to find a high-res scan of it - googlebooks does not have it. I substituted one of the other illustrations as the epub frontispiece). In addition it is formatted closer to the book, has a hot-link TOC, the images are linked to the appropriate text in the book, and a few spelling and ocr errors have been corrected. Here's how I described it in 2009:
This 1901 sf thriller is a bit like Burroughs' 'Land that Time Forgot' complete with prehistoric monsters and a subhuman race in a vast, deep pit at the North Pole (ERB's was a cliff-surrounded island Caprona near the South Pole). As with Caprona, the heat in the polar region came from volcanic and related sources. A major element of the book is an isolated Norwegian civilization that set out from Iceland in the 10th century and thrived in the warm polar pit.
