    Edgar Rice Burroughs - Synthetic Men of Mars (Methuen, 1941). This is the first UK edition of this title, and the ninth in Edgar Rice Burroughs' Barsoom tales starring John Carter, the Warlord of Mars. Originally serialized in the pulp magazine Argosy, in the issues published from January 7 through February 11, 1939, the dust jacket is Very Good (but price clipped), while the book itself grades Very Good. These vintage Methuen editions from the United Kingdom are a great -- and scarce -- alternative for collectors who may not have the budget for high-value A. C. McClurg first printings. The painted dust jacket artwork by G. P. Micklewright adds to the attraction of this great book.
