    Edgar Rice Burroughs: Beyond Thirty and The Man-Eater Unauthorized Eshbach Publications. (Np, nd), staplebound in wrappers (red & blue respectively), Beyond Thirty: 57 pages, The Man-Eater: 50 pages, each approximately 8.5" x 11". These two stories were published anonymously by Lloyd Eshbach at Fantasy Press, and supposedly given free of charge to Burroughs collectors. Eshbach, in fact, sold some of the 300 hectographed copies, but did not put the Fantasy Press imprint or his name on them because he was not sure of the copyright situation of either story. He simply wanted the stories read, as they were two of his favorite Burroughs tales, and long out of print. Almost simultaneously, having discovered that the two stories were public domain, Bradford Day at Science Fiction and Fantasy Publishers issued them in hardcover. The two copies here are in fine condition. One corner on each cover is slightly bent, the only flaw in these two rare pieces of science fiction publishing history. From the Ventura Collection.

    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.
