McClurg & Co., 1917), first edition, first state, 394 pages, green cloth with gilt lettering on the spine and cover, 8vo (5" x 7.5"), no dust jacket, but housed in custom green half-leather slipcase, with gilt lettering and banded leather on the spine.

Green directed the silver screen adaptation of the Burroughs tale, "The Lad and the Lion" in 1917, a Tarzan-esque boy and the beast tale.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
