- Full Description
ERB’s sixth novel in the Pellucidar series is for the first time reprinted by ERB Inc. and G&D – in two beautiful editions with different bindings, different dust jackets, a limitation signed and numbered page, and die-cut bookmark. This "Grosset & Dunlap Edition" has Bob Eggleton's wonderful new wrap-around painting on the jacket, and the original John Coleman Burroughs cover from 1944 as a double-fold-out frontispiece, sans type. Plus 13 color illustrations including two by Frazetta, one a fold out, a Joe Jusko fold-out, and 7 newly colored Roy Krenkel drawings. Also, 27 chapter headings, never used, drawn by Coleman Burroughs for the 1944 edition.
Both editions are limited to 200 numbered copies and feature:
- A custom slipcase - gold stamped on each side with a silhouette of a Tarag.
- Full color laminated dust jackets:
- The ERBI edition DJ utilizes the classic John Coleman Burroughs dust jacket painting.
- The G&D edition features a newly commissioned seascape painting by the award-winning artist Bob Eggleton.
- A limitation page signed by award-winning artist Bob Eggleton.
- High quality paper and binding - 80# Finch in a vellum finish – sewn half round binding and double-page map endpapers in full color.
- This edition is bound in embossed red cloth-covered boards that replicate (very nicely) the look and feel of what an original G&D edition WOULD have looked like if it had been done in their usual format.
- Thirteen color Illustrations - including 2 foldouts, one by Frazetta and one by Joe Jusko, and 7 newly colorized Krenkel illustrations from the 1963 Canaveral edition, that appeard there in black and white.
- The 27 chapter heading Illustrations by John Coleman Burroughs that were never used in the 1944 First edition.
A unique foreword for each edition is by Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner, author of Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Bibliography. (ERB Inc, 2016)
