The Son of Tarzan

Burroughs, Edgar Rice





Illustrated by J. Allen St. John. Green cloth lettered in gilt. First Edition, First Printing.

The first printing, as is this copy, is differentiated from the later printings by the absence of the dedication-page to Hulbert Burroughs. E.R. Burroughs had asked the publishers that the book be dedicated to Hulbert, and when they neglected to include the page in the first printing, he wrote them and asked that they put it in when the book was reprinted. All subsequent McClurg printings have the dedication page. Jack metamorphizes into Korak the Killer after moving into the African jungle. Heins ST-1; Zeuschner 485.

Lot Amendments

Some bubbling along edges of covers and spine; slight lean to spine; both hinges repaired; light toning to pages; overall very good.
