Tarzan Of the Apes

by Burroughs, Edgar Rice

Tarzan of the Apes is a novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the first in a series of books about the title character Tarzan. It was first published in the pulp magazine All-Story Magazine in October, 1912; the first book edition was published in 1914 by A.C. McClurg & Co in Chicago. The publisher was made famous by their original publishing of the Tarzan of the Apes novels and other stories of Edgar Rice Burroughs.

Tarzan of the Apes tells the story of Tarzan (“White Skin” in ape language) who is adopted as a baby by the she-ape Kala after his parents, the Lord and Lady Greystoke, pass away after being marooned in West Africa. Immediately popular, Burroughs continued the series into the 1940s with two dozen sequels, and the Tarzan character has been immortalized in books, films and television since. Tarzan was the first literary character to be registered in a trademark.

Tarzan and the Castaways was the last finished story by Burroughs, the 24th in his series on Tarzan. In addition to the title novella, the book also includes two short stories about Tarzan.

Tarzan: The Lost Adventure is a novel by American writer Joe R. Lansdale, based on an incomplete fragment of a Tarzan novel written by Edgar Rice Burroughs which had been left unfinished at his death. The book was serialized in four parts by Dark Horse Comics, before being published as a single volume in 1995.

First Edition Identification and Notes

First edition, first state has the printer's name set in two lines of Old English type, Publisher's crimson cloth without acorn device on spine. A.C. McClurg printed a total of 10,000 First Edition copies of "Tarzan of the Apes", with approximations of 5000 of the 1st state, 2500 of the 2nd state, and 2500 of the 3rd state.

First editions generally run around $3,000,-$5,000 but can be up to $35,000.

Other Collectible or Notable Editions

A.L. Burt and Grosset & Dunlap offered reprint editions similar to the first edition, that only include the date of the printing on the copyright page, leading many to assume they are first printing. With the Grosset & Dunlap editions the age of the book can often be approximated by examining the advertisements in the back of the book for other Edgar Rice Burroughs titles.
