    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
