    Description

    Edgar Rice Burroughs - Tarzan the Magnificent First Edition (Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc., 1939). This copy of Tarzan the Magnificent is the first edition, printed by Burroughs' own publishing house, Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. Accompanying this book is a small card that notes, "This book is one of the few survivors of a near-disastrous fire that occurred in our storeroom on Saturday, May 3, 1958. The fire started as a result of the spontaneous combustion of old Tarzan motion pictures printed on nitrate film. Although this book shows fire damage, we are told it has considerable value among collectors...." The fire damage mentioned in the note is limited to unobtrusive smoke marks along the top of the book, and near the upper part of the open edge. Other than these very minor smoke marks, this book and dust jacket both grade Fine.
