Plutonia

Vladimir Obruchev – Plutonia

Another early Soviet science fiction classic by Obruchev.  And another hidden-world story located somewhere in the ‘north’, where Russians could hide anything.  The book focuses mostly on dinosaurs and other ancient species.  This is also an undated Foreign Language Publishing House effort.  Great cover:

The book is designed by D. Bisti, illustrated by G. Nikolsky.  Here are some illustrations:
