Lost World Tales

Watermarked PDF

An expedition explores the unmapped regions of Peru in quest of the legendary Inca stronghold of Cusichu. Can the Abercrombie expedition reach Cusichu before the rival Jourdan expedition and will they really be able to find any remnants of the Inca stronghold with only legends and fuzzy aerial surveys as a guide?

Having found Cusichu, will the Abercrombie expedition find any evidence that the lost city is indeed the Inca stronghold used by El Espectro in his war against the Spanish conquistadores? What was the fate of the Inca warriors and their leader? Do the old Spanish documents only relate the ravings of a madman? What other secrets can be unearthed as the ruins are explored and legends become truth?

The exploration of the lost city leads to the secret escape route known to the Incas. What will be found in the lost valley beyond Cusichu? Can the ravings of the Spanish survivors of their expedition against Cusichu have been based on fact? The exploration of the Lost Valley will reveal the truth behind the Spanish reports, though it may s t i l l appear to be madness!

Scanned image
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
