    This Tarzan No. 1 comes from the city of Bharat in the northern India state of Punjab. How the Tarzan king of the apes made it from Africa to India I do not know.

    Seems like there were 30+ Tarzan books, I read them all as a kid. And then there were the comics

    I still have most of the books here and there. But my favorite Burroughs were the Mars books; I think I still have all of them.

    So we need a Dejah Thoris stove....

    I read all those Burroughs titles except the Eternal Lover and the War Chief. Burroughs' westerns have gotten good (if long-ago) reviews. He had worked extensively in the Southwest before he started writing. Those old McClurg and especially the Grosset & Dunlap press books bring back many happy memories.

    Burroughs was largely out-of-print by the early 1960s, and I would search the old used bookstores for the Tarzan and Mars books as a boy, around age 12-16. There was a lot of 'joy of discovery' when I'd come across another old tome. His stuff was all 40-50 years old by then.

    In the mid-late '60s, there was a big Burroughs revival, and all of his books were republished in paperback to a wide new audience. It got started when some publishers found that a lot of his work had been allowed to go out of copyright.

    I see in your collection you have the Warlord of Mars, the opening of which it so happens I've previously quoted here at CCS:
