This action-packed novel features piracy in the South Atlantic and the desperate measures undertaken by men stranded on a small island, home to the southern-most lighthouse in the world. The Lighthouse at the End of the World was inspired by the real lighthouse at the southern tip of Argentina. Verne's novel was later adapted into the 1971 film, The Light at the Edge of the World. Very Good + in Near Fine dust jacket. (Item #476)
