    Kaufman-Straus Co., Inc. Circa 1918 Bookstore Catalog with Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar on the Cover. This delightful piece of ephemera was sold by Kaufman-Straus of Louisville, Kentucky, and informed its customers of upcoming book releases. Measuring approximately 3.5" x 6.25", this catalog has a reproduction of the front cover of Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar on its cover, and lists four other Burroughs titles in the body of the catalog, all previously published. Since the first book edition of Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar was published in April, 1918, we can assume that this catalog was printed later that same year. The catalog itself is in near very good condition, with very mild soiling and wear to the covers, and two small tears to the right side of the front cover, which have been repaired on the inside with clear tape. This is a truly fascinating piece of Burroughs ephemera fit for the collection of any Tarzan completist.
