More about this item

TARZAN OF THE APES Edgar Rice Burroughs A. L. Burt, 1915. The book is over 100 years old. The earliest reprint of this classic book. This is why the book is priced as it is. A 1915 copy. After 1915 the Burt Company did not use this white, chalky colour for the lettering on the emerald green cloth, but rather used a more solid, yellowy and more permanent colour. You can still find these copies with the lettering pretty much intact. They are also duller looking than the chalky white one shown here for sale. The earliest copy of the book with Tarzan shown dark green silhouette, orange and light green design after Fred Arting, whose jacket design was on the first 1914 A. C. McClurg book of "Tarzan of The Apes." A. L. Burt Company published this book from 1915 to 1927. This book follows the same stamping design on the cover with the embossment and same dust jacket design of the 1914 McClurg first edition, which is very expensive in it original dust jacket. This Burt Co. printing design follows that design issued by the A.C. Mc Clurg Company. The book is bound in slick emerald green cloth, with the same embossing on the front board as in the first 1914 book edition, with the same number of pages and same pagination, printed from the same plates. The fragile flake white lettering is present on the front board, some flaking on the spine letter as shown. Else the book is fine. LAID into this book is a signed check by Edgar Rice Burroughs, made out to Canyon Cleaners. The dust jacket is very good with a bit of rubbing on the front panel (see photo #3) a little bit of wear as shown, a few closed tears also are shown, some chipping. Overall much better than encountered for an old book such as this one. No tape or other "improvement" factors marring this jacket. It is rare to find this particular flake white chalk printing edition and it's just not encountered in nice condition in embossed emerald green cloth. Add a map to your own listings. FREE Trial!
