A Golden Anniversary Bibliography of Edgar Rice Burroughs, compiled by Henry Hardy Heins, was the first book published by Donald M. Grant under the GRANT imprint. Published in an edition of 1,000 copies, it sold out upon publication and copies now sell for upwards of $600.00.
Donald M. Grant, Publisher, Inc. is very proud to announce this special second printing which includes a 2001 Postscript by Dr. Henry Hardy Heins. This is a numbered edition of 1,000 copies, all of which are signed by Dr. Heins . Each book is enclosed in a handsome foil stamped black leatherette slipcase.
This Golden Anniversary Bibliography of Edgar Rice Burroughs is the first serious book ever published dealing exclusively with Burroughs. It identifies in detail all of the known book and magazine versions of Burroughs' stories with clear and often fascinating guidance on how to tell them apart. Among the special features included are pictorial reproductions of all the full-page Burroughs' book announcements as they appeared in “Publishers' Weekly” from 1914-1948, the magazine artwork done by the famous J. Allen St. John (the illustrator so closely identified with Burroughs' work), photographs of Burroughs and his family that had never before been published, and a foreward by Hulbert Burroughs, the older son of ERB.
One fabulous highlight is the inclusion of five obscure articles written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, including: “Entertainment is Fiction's Purpose” and “How I Wrote the Tarzan Books”.
Obviously, this bibliography is the result of years of study and research in which the finest collections of more than one continent have been consulted by Dr. Heins for the best possible authenticity. But the volume is designed not only as an aid to the collector of Burroughs' editions; it is a fantastic source of information for the novice Burroughs reader. These pages, covering 50 years of publications are no less than a HISTORY of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the master story teller himself.
