It's Tarzan's 100th Anniversary and here in celebration are the first two novels. This is the original, unexpurgated text along with 20 all-new, full-page illustrations. Tarzan first appeared in 1912 in the pages of All-Story Magazine. It was two years before it appeared in book form. The sequel, Return of Tarzan, followed quickly a year later. Amendola's art is a bit simplistic at times, and more like Tom Yeates at its best. But here the story is king, and the art a small bonus.

In all, 24 novels of Tarzan would be written by ERB. He branched out with John Carter of Mars, Carson of Venus, and David Innes in the inner-earth world of Pellucidar. But it was Tarzan that became a household name, a decades-long daily and Sunday comic strip, dozens of films, radio shows, merchandise and much more.

This is it, the beginnings of the Lord of the Jungle and his first meeting with Jane, and with civilization. Here is the story of his parents, shipwrecked on the barbaric shores of Africa. After both have perished, the young Lord Greystoke is adopted by Kala, an ape who has just lost her first born to a jungle accident.

If you've never read this original, here you will find a surprisingly articulate, strategic, and even philosophical man who has been raised by wild apes into his adulthood. Unlike the Weismueller films, he ends up well educated (after a journey to England and France), dashing and handsome, but still a man of the forest at heart, capable of both nobility and killing without a second thought. His winning of Jane is legend, and his protection of her from evil white men and forest dangers never fails to be dramatic and powerful.
