    Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzan and the Golden Lion. Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1923.
    First edition. Twelvemo. 333 pages. Eight black-and-white plates by J. Allen St. John.

    Lime green cloth backed with dark green lettering and decorations on spine and front cover. In original dust jacket. Housed in an archival slipcase, bound in tan cloth and marbled papers, with gold lettering and black backstrip on the spine. The dust jacket, with minor paper loss at the head and foot of the spine, has been reinforced at the top and bottom edges (on the back) with archival tape. Overall near fine condition.

    Burroughs blends two of his favorite genres-adventure and science-fiction-in this Tarzan tale set partially in the mythical realm of Atlantis. In 1927, this popular tale was adapted for the screen (the sixth Tarzan film ever made) by FBO Pictures. To play the role of his jungle hero, Burroughs himself picked struggling actor James Pierce, who married the author's daughter, Joan. Another struggling actor, Boris Karloff, was cast as Owaza, a native chief. From the Robert and Diane Yaspan Collection.
