Paradise Found: The Cradle of the Human Race at the North Pole, A Study of the Prehistoric World

London: Sampson, Low, Marston, Searle & Rivington, 1885. Hardcover. Scarce. Written and initially received as science, Warren posits the North Pole as the source of all life, simultaneously Eden and Atlantis. A contemporary review in Science notes that "The book is very ingenious and learned, but, as it seems to us, conceived and written in the spirit of advocacy rather than in the true scientific spirit. .Yet we believe the book may be read with profit, even by the scientific anthropologist". Green cloth covers, wear and loss of cloth to corners, head and tail, worn patches on both joints. Previous owner's name in pencil on flyleaf, in pen on title page. Plates and illustrations in the text. Xxiv, [2], 505pp. 32 page publisher's catalog dated October, 1884. Very Good. Item #2024-Q32
