    Edgar Rice Burroughs Tarzan at the Earth's Core (New York: Metropolitan Books, Inc., 1930), first edition, 301 pages, 12mo (5.25" x 7.75), green cloth boards with a frontispiece illustration by J. Allen St. John. The book is inscribed from Burrough's wife to her brother. "To Eddie from your ever loving sister - Florence Gilbert Burroughs". Mrs. Burroughs' bookplate is on the inside front cover as well as another bookplate on the front free endpaper which bears her name from a previous marriage - Florence Gilbert Dearholt. Though she was overshadowed by her better known author husband, Florence had an equally interesting life. Her uncanny resemblance to silent-screen star Mary Pickford landed her a role as Mary's double and in this role she appeared in over 50 films.

    This was my first time dealing with an auction house, and I am 100% completely impressed with Heritage. There is not an aspect of this process that I have a critique for.
