Presenting a gloriously rare book …. Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar First Edition by Edgar Rice Burroughs Grosset & Dunlap 1st Edition. First Thus. Illustrated by J. Allen St. John. 1 vols. 8vo. The fifth book in the Tarzan series. Zeuschner 583 (noting titles in black) Red cloth titled in black. Good to fair copy (no dust jacket) (some soiling, especially to spine and cover) Illustrated by J. Allen St. John. 1 vols. 8vo. Grosset & Dunlap, NY, 1918. First Thus. Tarzan of the Apes is a novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first in a series of books about the title character Tarzan. It was first published in the pulp magazine All-Story Magazine in October, 1912; the first book edition was published in 1914 by A.C. McClurg & Co in Chicago. The publisher was made famous by their original publishing of the Tarzan of the Apes novels and other stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzan of the Apes tells the story of Tarzan (“White Skin” in ape language) who is adopted as a baby by the she-ape Kala after his parents, the Lord and Lady Greystoke, pass away after being marooned in West Africa. Immediately popular, Burroughs continued the series into the 1940s with two dozen sequels, and the Tarzan character has been immortalized in books, films and television since. Tarzan was the first literary character to be registered in a trademark. Tarzan and the Castaways was the last finished story by Burroughs, the 24th in his series on Tarzan. In addition to the title novella, the book also includes two short stories about Tarzan. Tarzan: The Lost Adventure is a novel by American writer Joe R. Lansdale, based on an incomplete fragment of a Tarzan novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs which had been left unfinished at his death. The book was serialized in four parts by Dark Horse Comics, before being published as a single volume in 1995 No dust jacket. Some water damage to cover and first couple of pages, but otherwise good.
