(#151473) THE SON OF TARZAN. Edgar Rice Burroughs.

THE SON OF TARZAN. Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1918. Octavo, pp. [1-6] 1-394, illustrated by J. Allen St. John, original green cloth, front panel stamped in gold and blind, spine panel stamped in gold. First edition, later (probable fourth) printing with W. F. Hall imprint on verso of title leaf, dedication leaf present, and title page dated 1918, not 1917. By late June 1917, THE SON OF TARZAN, published in March 1917, had been reprinted twice. There were two printings of the McClurg edition with the title page dated 1918; this one with the Hall imprint probably preceded copies without the Hall imprint on the copyright page. The fourth book of the Tarzan series. Bleiler, Science-Fiction: The Early Years 318. Clareson, Science Fiction in America, 1870s-1930s 117. Bleiler (1978), p. 35. Reginald 02311. Heins ST-3. A square, bright, clean, very good white paper copy in good four-color pictorial dust jacket correctly priced $1.30 on the spine panel (with wraparound illustration by J. Allen St. John) with wear and chipping, mostly shallow, along top and bottom edges, mainly spine ends and corner tips, some rubbing along spine and flap folds, and abrasions to rear panel, the largest measuring 12x80 mm. Despite the rather large combined print run, this is among the most difficult of the McClurg editions to obtain in jacket. A decent example of a rare jacket never touched by a paper conservationist.
