The first of the Martian novels, The Princess of Mars first saw print in a shorter form in All-Story magazine as "Under the Moons of Mars" in 1912. When the novel was finally printed in book form, McClurg had already published four of Burroughs' Tarzan books and was advertising the Princess of Mars in their catalog as "an absorbing tale of adventure and romance forty-three million miles from Earth. It is hardly too much to say that it is the boldest piece of imaginative fiction in this generation. The story is full of weird and astounding adventures written by an author bold enough to create 'Tarzan, the Apeman'." (Heins) From the Frank Collection.
