    Description

    All-Story Magazine "Warlord of Mars" Group (Munsey, 1913-14) Condition: Average VG. Edgar Rice Burroughs' third "Barsoom" novel concludes the story arc that began with "A Princess of Mars" and "Gods of Mars" just two years earlier. The trilogy -- and the entire series overall -- played a profound role in shaping science fiction during its formative years. This group of All-Story Magazine issues includes the first, second, and fourth installments of the four-part serial, specifically the December 1913 and January and March 1914 issues. The December issue also features a sci-fi/bondage cover by Fred W. Small and the conclusion of the story "Her Forbidden Knight" by Rex Stout, and the March issue features "The Woman of the Pyramid" by Perley Poore Sheehan. The magazines are in fantastic condition, especially when one considers their age, and tight binding, supple cream-colored pages, and spines that are almost entirely intact. (There is a moderate amount of wear to the top right corner of the March issue.) Approximate Bookery's Guide to Pulps value for group = $2,500.
