The characters of Ed Malone and Lord John Roxton are inspired by the journalist E. D. Morel and the diplomat Roger Casement, leaders of the Congo Free State reform campaign, that Conan Doyle supported.

The novel has been reprinted in several formats in several languages. A paperback edition was issued in Holicong, Pennsylvania by Wildside Press in 2004 with ISBN 0809594358. It is also often reprinted within collected works of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

In 1915, the Russian scientist Vladimir Obruchev produced his own version of the "lost world" theme in the novel Plutonia, which places the dinosaurs and other Jurassic species in the underground area of Russian Siberia.

The novel has been adapted to film many times, the first time in 1925, with screen legend Wallace Beery as Professor Challenger. This version was directed by Harry O. Hoyt and featured pioneering stop motion special effects by Willis O'Brien (an invaluable warmup for his work on the original King Kong directed by Merian C. Cooper). This version has been deemed "culturally significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the United States National Film Registry.

The novel was also adapted to film in 1960, 1992 and 1998. A sequel to the 1992 film, Return to the Lost World, was also released that year. The novel also inspired a 2001 television series.

The name was reused by Michael Crichton's 1995 novel The Lost World, a sequel to Jurassic Park, and in its film adaptation, The Lost World: Jurassic Park. At least two similarly named TV shows, Land of the Lost and Lost, nod to this source material.

In the beginning, Ed Malone fell in love with a lady named Gladys. Gladys wanted to marry a heroic man so Malone was determined to become a heroic man and get Gladys to approve him. So Malone went to his editor, McArdle, to get a dangerous and adventurous mission, so McArdle sent Malone to interview Professor Challenger, a notable task as Challenger has assaulted some four or five other journalists who have come to speak with him on his discovery of dinosaurs in South America. The discovery has been thus far ridiculed by the mainstream, but Challenger, after also assaulting Malone, convinces him of its veracity and invites him on an expedition to the Amazon to gather more evidence. Two other characters are also invited, Professor Summerlee, another scientist qualified to examine any evidence, and Lord John Roxton, an adventurer who knows the Amazon and several years previous to the action in the book helped end slavery in South America. They reach the plateau with the aid of Indian guides, who are superstitiously scared of the area, and trickle away by the time the expedition reaches its goal, with the exception of two Indians. One of these Indians (actually half Spanish, half Indian), Gomez, is the brother of a man that Roxton killed when he was fighting slavery the last time he was in South America. When the expedition manages to get onto the plateau Gomez traps them there by destroying their bridge. The other Indian, Zombo, is loyal and remains at the base of the plateau to help his employers if they can get back down.
