    An Unusual Item - a Printer's Dummy for an Unused Design of Burroughs' The Cave Girl

    Edgar Rice Burroughs. The Cave Girl. Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1925. Printer's dummy for an unused example of what is most likely the first printing of this title (there is no text on the copyright page, but McClurg only published one printing (the first edition, first printing) of this title). Octavo. [2, blank], [vi], 7, [6, blank] pages (the first gathering only). With inserted frontispiece. In an unused binding design of full yellow cloth, front board lettered in black. Spine is folded, due to the fact that only one gathering is present, not bound with free endpapers, staples of binding are visible (very minor wear). A bright fine example of what was evidently an unused binding design for this title (it was eventually published in blue cloth, lettered in dark green). The San Clemente Collection of Edgar Rice Burroughs.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
