A lost world at the Polar Ice Cap.

Was it a hair-brained scheme, or would it be the most stupendous scientific journey ever undertaken by man? When twin American brothers Torrence and Gurthrie Addlebridge arrived in London, it was to seek financial backing for the construction of a new-fangled air ship (of Torrence's design) that would send mankind into the vast frontier of air flight.

Yet it wasn't this fantastic machine that would prove to be so astonishing, but the plans for its maiden voyage. You see, Torrence Addlebridge knew something that the rest of the scientific world didn't--the existence of another world right here on Earth; a world whose entrance could only be gained by a perilous journey across the frozen wilds of the Arctic.

So the Addlebridge brothers--after some hair-raising incidents--made their way across the Atlantic, into the bitter cold of the Arctic; and what they found was far more fantastic than anything they'd dreamed of.
