Author(s): Edgar Rice Burroughs
Edgar Rice Burroughs' first two Tarzan books in one volume! Tarzan of the Apes (1912)and The Return of Tarzan (1913) recount the adventures of John Clayton, a man who was raised by apes after the death of his parents. Clayton was renamed "Tarzan" by the apes, and grew up in the wild without knowledge of his humanity. Both novels are classic examples of American pulp fiction, portraying Tarzan as the quintessential strong, wild, able-bodied hero. This elegantly designed clothbound edition features an elastic closure and a new introduction.
Edgar Rice Burroughs (1875-1950) was an American author, best known for his creation of the jungle hero, Tarzan, and the heroic Mars adventurer, John Carter, although he produced works in many genres. At the time of the attack on Pearl Harbour, Burroughs became one of the oldest war correspondents for the US during World War 2.
