    "In the hardcover first edition, Burroughs restored the original material on the [Tarzan look-alike Estaban] Miranda subplot [which was removed from the Argosy All-Story Weekly], and restored the original wording of the last two chapters... A. C. McClurg records indicated that 10,000 copies of the first edition were printed" (Zeuschner, Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Bibliography, 2016).
