Details

First edition, limited to 2000 copies bound in gold foil cloth with blue lettering & black pictorial design on the front board. Huge size, reproducing Hogarth's finest run on the Sunday Pages in the original size as they appeared in the newspapers from 1939 to 1942. Four complete episodes: Amazons, Boers, Peoples of the Sea and Fire, and Against Dagga Ramba. Introduction by Maurice Horn, special essay by Burne Hogarth. Includes matching slipcase, also bound in gold foil cloth.

Superbly printed on 100 lb. matte coated paper, and with the introductory pages on 70 lb tinted laid paper.

Also: when I was buying books directly from Danton Burroughs, for several years I bought copies of this book that he had taken back from Chelsea House after a disagreement. However, many of these were NOT signed by Hogarth. Whether Hogarth actually did not sign all 2000 copies, or whether Chelsea House overprinted on this by some measure, may never be known.

Suffice to say, this is one of the premiere Tarzan and Edgar Rice Burroughs items. It's magnificent. Reading these Sunday Pages in this large size is a very special experience, just like seeing the Hal Foster Prince Valiant Sunday full page in the aborted Manuscript Press project that collected, also, three years of pages.

Note: This is long out of print, stored in ERB Inc's warehouse for decades. Fine in Near Fine slipcase. The book and the slipcase may have some slight scuffing.

Since we don't charge shipping for orders over $300, this qualifies for free shipping (and it's heavy and very large)!
