About This Item

Chicago: McClurg, 1917. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Facsimile. 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall. J. Allen St. John. 1st Printing 1 Copyright date is 1917, first edition, first printing. Illustrated by J. Allen St. John. Green cloth lettered in gilt. First Edition, First Printing. The first printing, as is this copy, is differentiated from the later printings by the absence of the dedication-page to Hulbert Burroughs. E.R. Burroughs had asked the publishers that the book be dedicated to Hulbert, and when they neglected to include the page in the first printing, he wrote them and asked that they put it in when the book was reprinted. All subsequent McClurg printings have the dedication page. Jack metamorphizes into Korak the Killer after moving into the African jungle. Heins ST-1; Zeuschner 485. Some bubbling along edges of covers and spine; slight lean to spine; both hinges repaired; light toning to pages; overall very good.


The Son of Tarzan is Edgar Rice Burroughs' fourth novel in the Tarzan series. First serialized between 1915 and 1916 in All-Story Weekly, it was published as a novel in 1917. Narrowly surviving his encounter with his enemy Tarzan in The Beasts of Tarzan, Alexis Paulvitch has a score to settle. He lures Tarzan's son Jack away from London and captures him, only to have Jack escape into the jungle that Tarzan once called home. With the help of an ape named Akut, Jack soon finds his place among the great apes, as his father did before him. But after rescuing the beautiful young woman named Meriem, the disaffected young man and the mistreated young woman must learn to live and love together in the dangerous jungle.
