    Edgar Rice Burroughs - Tarzan of the Apes (A. L. Burt, 1914). The first edition of Edgar Rice Burroughs' Tarzan of the Apes was published by A. C. McClurg, but the earliest American reprintings of Edgar Rice Burroughs books were undertaken by A. L. Burt. There were many slight variations among the Burt editions, as they were reprinted again and again. This copy has black lettering on green cloth, with the author's name centered on two lines, and an embossed line around the edge of the cover. The book is in Good to Very Good condition, with no dust jacket and a variety of scuffs, bumps, and minor stains and soiling. The page quality is good, off-white and supple.

    I have done a preliminary analysis and the total of the hammer prices was $67,550. With BP, the final figure was $80,722.25. That is against the total insurance value of $34,785 or 2.32 x ‘pre-auction estimate’. Incredible, really, so a big thanks.
