Tarzan Of The Apes First Edition
Title: Tarzan of the Apes
Author: Burroughs, Edgar Rice
Description: Title-page illustration by Fred J. Arting. Red cloth lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. First Edition, First Printing.Burroughs' first book, and the first volume in his signature series, in which Tarzan, the son of an English nobleman, is raised in the jungle by a she-ape, falls in love with Jane Porter, and journeys to America to find her. This is the first binding, with A.C. McClurg set in one line in spine imprint, no acorn device, and the first printing (or state), with "W.F. Hall Printing Co./ Chicago" on copyright page set in two lines of Old English type. Heins gives the binding with the acorn device on the spine priority, but investigations since he wrote his bibliography reveal that not to be the case. Heins TA-2; Zeuschner 696; Peter Parley to Penrod, p. 134.
