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 1940 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. Ill.: b&w frontispiece. First published in 1940, this is the 1948 reprint, with the John Coleman Burroughs frontispiece. Zeuschner 512.
