Description

    A Rare First Edition of Tarzan of the Apes in Dust Jacket.

    Edgar Rice Burroughs. Tarzan of the Apes. Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1914.
    First edition, first printing. No acorn device on the spine and "W. F. Hall" on the copyright page in Old English script. Octavo. 401 pages.

    Publisher's maroon cloth with gilt titles. In original pictorial dust jacket. Moderate shelf wear, bumped corners. Interior text is remarkably clean. The dust jacket shows mild edge wear, minor rubbing, and a few incidental fold creases. It has been repaired, with extensive restoration including two major tear seals and multiple pieces added to the verso.

    About a year-and-a-half after his debut in the pages of The All-Story, Tarzan's first appearance was reprinted in hardback form -- the first hardback Edgar Rice Burroughs ever published, in an initial run of only 5,000 copies. Scarce and desirable in jacket. A beautiful book.
