    Zdenek Burian - Jungle Scenes of Tarzan Portfolio (Jewel of Opar Press, 1973). Zdenek Burian is perhaps best known for his paintings of prehistoric life. In 1973, C.E. Cazedessus Jr. published this portfolio of Tarzan images. The portfolio originally contained 30 print; plate one was printed in color, the others are presented in black and white. The plates measure an overall 10" x 15". Plate five is missing from this portfolio, but several photocopy facsimiles are included in the portfolio. Also included is a 11" x 17" P.Craig Russell Conan poster that was folded in half, and fitted in the envelope. The plates are enclosed in a brown paper wrap folder, illustrated on the front and back. Also a one-sheet 8" x 11" flyer about "The Art of Burian", folded in half to make four pages, front and back. It prints three Tarzan paintings and a biography of Burian. The portfolio cover shows minor edge wear and corner bumps, and a one-inch spine tear at the lower spine; otherwise it is in Very Good condition.
