Truly lovely, tight copy of this volume in this publisher's "The World's Best Reading" series -- but what a copy! For this 1904 novel was made into a made-for-t.v. adventure drama in 1993, and this special copy bears fine signatures from three main film cast members tipped to the front flyleaf on fine heavy stock 5" X 3" cards. At top is CHARLES BRONSON (1921-2003, who plays Captain Wolf Larsen), who signs large and bold in black fineline; below him is LEN CARIOU (born 1939, who plays Dr. Picard), who signs in blue ballpoint and dates it 22 April 1970 at upper right; and below him is CLIVE REVILL (born 1930, who plays Thomas C. "Cookie" Mugridge), who signs in black fineline and dates it 18 October 1971 at upper right. 4-page publisher's leaflet about this title laid in -- as are the original transmittal envelopes from Cariou and Revill. An outstanding, unique copy.
