BURROUGHS, EDGAR RICE
A FIGHTING MAN OF MARS
Tarzana, CA, Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc. , hb. Ill.: b&w frontispiece. Bound in tan cloth with dark brown/red lettering. 8vo, pp. 319. First published in 1931, this is the 1948 reprint, with the Hugh Hutton frontispiece. Zeuschner 71.
¶ Boards bumped at corners and rubbbed at edges. Small stain to front board and some spotting to rear board. Binding cracking at mid-section of book. Free of previous owner's markings. About good minus condition. Wants dust jacket. Remember: when price-checking this book, many relatively inexpensive copies will be offered with the claim that the book is a first edition, and/or was published in 1931 when, in fact, the copy was actually published later. (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.
