LOST ON VENUS
Tarzana, CA, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. , hb. Ill.: b&w frontispiece. Bound in tan cloth with dark brown/red lettering. 8vo, pp. 318. First published in 1935, this is the 1948 reprint, with the John Coleman Burroughs frontispiece. Zeuschner 290.
¶ Slight wear to tips of boards. Binding sl. stressed. Foredges sl. soiled. Moisture affected top edge (stained red by printer), which has bled through to first ten, or so, preliminary pages (including title page and frontispiece). Otherwise, free of previous owner's markings. Overall, a fair to good copy. Wants dust jacket. Remember: when price-checking this book, relatively inexpensive copies will be offered with the claim that the book is a first edition, and/or was published in 1935 when, in fact, this Burroughs, Inc., edition was actually published in 1948. (Hint: any edition published by Burroughs, Inc., in a tan/gray binding is a reprint). Without the help of a thorough Burroughs' bibliography, such as Heins or Zeuschner, it is unfortunately easy for an uninformed bookseller to incorrectly describe this book. If in doubt - ask the dealer which bibliography was used to identify the book as a first edition. Cheaper is not always better.
