NUMBERED LIMITED DELUXE EDITION (#218) Click for larger image ...
Bound in genuine red leather with a hub spine and cover decorations stamped in gilt. Signed by the author, by ERB's president James Sullos, who provides an introduction, by John Ralston Burroughs, and by Jim Gerlach, who designed the book and introduces the illustrations. Robert B. Zeuschner, one of the most highly respected ERB scholars, takes the reader on a delightful journey through the publications that made Burroughs one of the most influential authors of the twentieth century. 2000 annotated, illustrated entries describing ERB publications from 1911 to present. 500+ color images including 1st & reprint edition books & dustjackets and 97 ERB story-related pulp covers.
Pulps, first editions, reprints, new editions with added artwork, pamphlets, fan magazines...all are here. We especially like the coverage of the ERB-produced books from the 1930s and 1940s, showing both the inside hardcover (with specifics of binding color and labels) and the entire dust wrapper, where again one little variation can make the difference between a first edition and a reprint.
Wonderful coverage of pulp appearances, with rarely seen early covers for ERB's first stories, as well as wonderful Blue Book and other serialized appearances in the 1920s, 30s and even 40s, with covers by talent like J. Allen St. John. This is a massive volume, packed with minute detail. It even looks at the paperback boom of the 1960s and beyond, with the seminal Ace covers by Frazetta and Krenkel, the Ballantine series by Powers and others, and some very obscure works even we've missed until now.
600+ images, 500+ in color on glossy stock. This one-of-a kind bibliography is a must for anyone interested in the stories and the story of Edgar Rice Burroughs.
Produced with full cooperation of ERB, Inc. and in fact, it has has their imprint just like those classic ERB novels in the 1930s and 1940s.
