Price: $650.00

Book Condition: Very Good


[a solid Very Good on average (several issues would individually grade Near Fine), with the only serious condition problems being some soiling and surface damage along the spine and lower rear cover of the December 1935 issue, and a couple of surface scrapes/blemishes on the front cover of the November 1935 issue]. These six issues of The Blue Book Magazine contain the first appearance of Burroughs's "Tarzan and the Immortal Men," published in hardcover and subsequently known as "Tarzan's Quest," presented in monthly installments from October 1935 (Vol. 61, No. 6) through March 1936 (Vol. 62, No. 5). The text illustrations for the Burroughs novel are by Frank Hoban, although the one cover (for the opening installment) that depicts Tarzan himself was painted by the magazine's regular cover illustrator at that time, Herbert Morton Stoops. This presents a rare opportunity to examine this "Tarzan" adventure in its original context, as each issue is complete with the many other stories and features for which this popular magazine was known.
