This is the real Edgar Rice Burroughs Tarzan, not the Disney stuff. I'm looking to finish 3 different pb sets of the original 24-book ERB series, all are late 60s-to-early 80's editions from Ballantine publishing.

(1) Here's an example of the "BLACK COVER" set (late '70s to early '80s), series # in red circle in top corner :

  • Will give one credit each for NICE copies, especially if the spine is in good shape
  • If you have worn copies, I'd consider a deal

 

(2) Here's an example of the early-to-mid '70s edition, WHITE COVER, "Tarzan" in black capital letters:

(3) Here's an example of the earliest (late '60s-early '70s)  set I'm looking for, Dick Powers cover art:

  • Same deal on all 3 editions. One credit each for nice copies, consider deals for worn copies
  • "NICE" condition doesn't mean "giftable", these are old paperbacks
  • But it is possible to find these without too much wear or too many wrinkles

PM me if you have any of these you'd like to discuss. Thanks!

Michael
