Edgar Rice Burroughs – First Edition Books: Identification Points

Edgar Rice Burroughs
Edgar Rice Burroughs

Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875 –1950) was an American speculative fiction writer, best known for his prolific output in the adventure, science fiction and fantasy genres. His most well-known creations include Tarzan of the Apes, John Carter of Mars (Barsoom series) and Carson Napier of Venus (Amtor series).

He is also known for the hollow Earth–themed Pellucidar series, beginning with At the Earth’s Core (1914); and the lost world–themed Caspak trilogy, beginning with The Land that Time Forgot (1918).

Aiming his work at the pulps—under the name “Norman Bean” to protect his reputation—Burroughs had his first story, Under the Moons of Mars, serialized by Frank Munsey in the February to July 1912 issues of The All-Story. Under the Moons of Mars inaugurated the Barsoom series. It was first published as a book by A. C. McClurg of Chicago in 1917, entitled A Princess of Mars, after three Barsoom sequels had appeared as serials and McClurg had published the first four serial Tarzan novels as books.

Burroughs soon took up writing full-time, and by the time the run of Under the Moons of Mars had finished, he had completed two novels, including Tarzan of the Apes, published from October 1912 and one of his most successful series.

Burroughs also wrote popular science fiction and fantasy stories involving adventurers from Earth transported to various planets (notably Barsoom, Burroughs’s fictional name for Mars, and Amtor, his fictional name for Venus), lost islands, and into the interior of the Hollow Earth in his Pellucidar stories. He also wrote Westerns and historical romances. Besides those published in All-Story, many of his stories were published in The Argosy magazine.

Tarzan was a cultural sensation when introduced. Burroughs was determined to capitalize on Tarzan’s popularity in every way possible. He planned to exploit Tarzan through several different media including a syndicated Tarzan comic strip, movies, and merchandise. Experts in the field advised against this course of action, stating that the different media would just end up competing against each other. Burroughs went ahead, however, and proved the experts wrong – the public wanted Tarzan in whatever fashion he was offered. Tarzan remains one of the most successful fictional characters to this day and is a cultural icon.

1923THE GIRL FROM HOLLYWOOD New York: The Macaulay Company, [1923]Three bindings, sequence for the first two probably as listed, the last definitely later:

  • (C) Tight mesh weave red cloth lettered in black.
Three printings, probable sequence for the first two as listed, the last definitely later:

An obvious later printing (binding C, printing C) lacks "he said" in the caption.
