The Return of Tarzan by Edgar Rice Burroughs contains even more adventure, romance and enthralling action than Tarzan of the Apes. At the end of the first book in the classic series that inspired the Disney movie, Jane had promised to marry William Cecil Clayton, Lord Greystoke, convinced by friends and family she could never know happiness living in the jungle as the bride of a primitive ape-man. Tarzan, who had just learned from a comparison of his fingerprints that he is the true heir to the Greystoke title and fortune, had concealed the fact and swore that he was the offspring of a white hunter and an ape, so that Jane can have a life of unshadowed happiness with her fiancée.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews
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of the book ever done, annotated with several pages of notes, and an introduction, and most important, not seen in this outdated photo, is the new Frank Frazetta cover the book now has on its recent printing.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!
