Overview

Tarzan of the Apes is Edgar Rice Burroughs' hugely popular 1914 book that spawned two dozen sequels. A child of a white couple who are killed by an ape in the jungles of Africa, Tarzan is raised by a she-ape as her own. Eventually Tarzan finds his parents' cabin and figures out why he's different from the apes from looking through their books, and eventually teaches himself to read. The adventure kicks into high gear when a band of African hunters move in and kill Tarzan's ape mother.

Tarzan of the Apes is the original and probably the best. "Tarzan Begins" could be a modern title. Get all the back story and watch Tarzan become the hunky, vine-swingin' jungle man who's inspired nearly a century's worth of kids to be just like the King of the Apes.

Tarzan of the Apes is a seminal work-- not only the first book (and origin) of Tarzan, but the first modern mythic fiction superhero that would not only lay the groundwork for the fantasy pulps but the comic book superhero genre. Tarzan is the original modern superman. One of my top favorite books, right up there with King Kull. Here you have the nicest paperback edition of the book ever done, annotated with several pages of notes, and an introduction, and most important, not seen in this outdated photo, is the new Frank Frazetta cover the book now has on its recent printing. Highly recommended!
