About the Books:

Back to the Stone Age:

When the great dirigible, the giant 0-220, sailed majestically through the north polar opening out of that weird and savage inner world, Pellucidar, it left behind, unaccounted for, but a single member of its original crew that had sailed with Jason Gridley and Tarzan to the rescue of David Innes.

That man was Lieutenant von Horst, and this is the story of the strange adventures that befell him among the stone age peoples of Pellucidar as he wandered, friendless and alone, from one danger to another—a thrilling story in which a barbarian slave girl, savage cave men, prehistoric reptiles and mammoth animals all have their exciting roles.

Edgar Rice Burroughs: The Bibliography:

Edgar Rice Burroughs Incorporated today announced the release of the long-awaited definitive bibliography of the Master of Adventure by longtime Burroughs scholar Dr. Robert B. Zeuschner.

Edgar Rice Burroughs, well known for his tales of Tarzan and John Carter of Mars, has been rightfully dubbed The Master of Adventure, but few are aware of the full scope of Burroughs’ literary output in a writing career that spanned four decades. During his lifetime, Burroughs created worlds that ranged from the Earth's core to the Farthest Star, inhabited by larger-than-life heroes and heroines, populated by unimaginable creatures and captivating landscapes.

“We are absolutely thrilled to publish this very special book, which has been almost twenty years in the making,” said Jim Sullos, President of Edgar Rice Burroughs, Inc.  “We opened our archives to Dr. Zeuschner and he has produced the definitive account of everything published by Edgar Rice Burroughs. This is a one-of-a-kind illustrated bibliography that should be a must for anyone interested in ERB, the history of pulp fiction and the works that inspired Superman and every other pulp hero since.”

The Bibliography features over 2000 annotated, illustrated entries describing ERB publications from 1911 to the present and 500 color images including 1st & reprint edition books & dustjackets, paperbacks and the 97 ERB story-related pulp covers. Both editions are 7 by 10 inch hardcover books.


First edition bound in genuine red leather with a hub spine and cover decorations stamped in gilt. Limited to 375 signed (by the author, publisher, designer and John Ralston Burroughs, the grandson of ERB) and numbered copies. 736 pages; 600+ images, 500 + in color on glossy stock.
