    Henry Hardy Heins: A Golden Anniversary Bibliography of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inscribed to Mrs. J. Allen St. Johns. (West Kingston: Donald M. Grant, 1964), revised edition of the 1962 first edition, 418 pages, illustrated with a selection of artwork from Burroughs' books and stories, maroon cloth with gilt titles, 4to (7" x 10.5"), near fine in a fine jacket. The inscription, on the ffep, reads in full "To Mrs. J. Allen St. John/ in memory of J. Allen/ who must have been a/ wonderful man./ All good wishes-/ Henry Hardy Heins". J. Allen St. John was the primary illustrator for Burroughs' books and magazine stories. His work is immediately recognizable and has become inextricably associated with Burroughs' work. Accompanying the book is a two-page letter on the author's church letterhead (the author was a Lutheran pastor in Albany, New York) to Mrs. St. John requesting, among other things, to use St. John's classic "Tarzan and the Golden Lion" illustration for the cover of this book. 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.
