One hundred years ago, A. C. McClurg & Co., with offices on Wabash Avenue in Chicago, was arranging for M. A. Donohue & Co. to letterpress print and bind the first edition of "At the Earth's Core." It would introduce a new audience to the fantastic world of Pellucidar - the third of three new worlds Edgar Rice Burroughs created by 1913 and in a span of less than two years.
This brand new boxed-set edition of "At the Earth's Core" is designed to capture the craftsmanship of the past while leading you to experience the adventures in Pellucidar in fresh new way.
