The Beasts of Tarzan

"This volume would be a wonderful addition to the collection of many corner TV stands. It is a fantastic adventure that would hopefully be enjoyed for generations to come. The first editions shown below are a truly classic and collectible form of entertainment."

FIRST EDITION IDENTIFIERS:

A.C. McClurg is printed on the spine. There are two variations in the color of the cloth boards, a forest green and an olive green. Priority has not been established as to which was printed first. A total of 19,500 copies of both variations were printed. Gold lettering is used on both the spine and cover.

J. Allen St. John illustrated the wrap-around dust jacket, frontispiece, title page and 38 small pen & ink drawings intermixed with the text throughout the book.

The photo to the right is of the "olive green" cover, and, the photo below is of the "forest green" cloth variation.

Above is a reproduction of the first edition dust jacket (see ERB Links list of places to purchase dust jackets).

REPRINT EDITIONS

A.L. Burt Reprint Editions

First Burt reprint from 1916 First Burt reprint from 1916 Date of printing unknown Date of printing unknown Date of printing unknown Date of printing unknown
Reproduction of the 1st Burt edition from "The Dust Jacket Store".

   From 1917 until 1927 A.L. Burt reprinted this title in a number of variations as shown above. The earliest
   printings have white lettering and the dust jacket is virtually the same as the first edition jacket; however
   "A.L. Burt" is printed on the spine. Later versions have black lettering on the covers and spine.
   A.L. Burt did not include the date of the printing so many a novice incorrectly assumes the book to be a
   first edition as the only date listed is the copyright date.

Grosset & Dunlap Reprint Editions

Reproduction of the 1st G&D edition from "The Dust Jacket Store". Front cover of Dust Jacket on G&D edition. Front cover of Dust Jacket on G&D edition.

    From 1927 until 1943 Grosset & Dunlap reprinted this title in a number of variations with some of them
    shown above.  Mostly the colors of the books are some hue of red.   Grosset & Dunlap did not include
    the date of the printing so many a novice incorrectly assumes the book to be a first edition as the
    only date listed is the copyright date. The age of the book can often be approximated by examing the
    advertisements in the back of the book for other Edgar Rice Burroughs titles.
