    Tarzan #1-27 Bound Volume (Dell, 1948-51). This giant volume holds the first 27 issues of the Dell series, all featuring the art of Jesse Marsh. Marsh also did the covers for the first seven issues; then Mo Gollub the covers for issues #8-12. Lex Barker photo covers began with #13. Highlights include the first Tantor the Elephant in #6, the first Valley of the Monsters in #7, and the first Brothers of the Spear episode in #25. The covers retain much of their original color and gloss, and the page quality averages cream to off-white. And the back covers are as nice as the front! A brilliant collection! The issues have been trimmed to fit the bound volume format, and professionally bound into this sturdy volume. There's a small (book)worm hole at the lower right corner of issues #18 and 19. It barely affects the front cover of #18, but runs through the rest of the book, then through the front cover and about half of issue #19. But this barely distracts from this very desirable volume! Overstreet 2007 VG 4.0 value for issues = $1,504.
