Edgar Rice Burroughs: Tarzan and the Foreign Legion. (Tarzana, California: Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. Publishers, 1947), first edition, 314 pages, blue embossed cloth with red lettering on spine and front board, 12mo (5.5" x 7.75"), dust jacket. Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Burroughs' son John Coleman Burroughs. Tarzan and the Foreign Legion was the last Tarzan story completed by Burroughs and published in his lifetime. At the time Burroughs wrote the story, he was living in Hawaii and working as a war correspondent for United Press. In fact, Burroughs was the oldest correspondent in the Pacific theater. Tarzan and the Foreign Legion resulted from his experiences there, especially the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor (which Burroughs witnessed), and Burroughs time in Java. The book is in very good condition, with minimal edge wear and corner rubbing to the book. The dust jacket shows edge wear and mild chipping at the spine ends and bottom edge. The textblock is clean and tight on this essential Burroughs first edition.

    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.
