The Tarzan Series: Volumes 1-8 (Illustrated) by Edgar Rice Burroughs

*Includes Table of Contents

Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875 – March 19, 1950) has obtained lasting fame for his works about the jungle hero Tarzan, and also for the heroic Mars adventurer John Carter, but he was a voluminous writer who also wrote in many other genres as well. Burroughs famously got started out of disdain for others’ writings, noting, "...if people were paid for writing rot such as I read in some of those magazines, that I could write stories just as rotten. As a matter of fact, although I had never written a story, I knew absolutely that I could write stories just as entertaining and probably a whole lot more so than any I chanced to read in those magazines."

This edition of Burroughs’ The Tarzan Series: Volumes 1-8 is specially formatted with a Table of Contents and is illustrated with over a dozen pictures.

It's easy to navigate between books, all the great stories I loved as a child. if you can get past the racisim and sexist stereotypes of the day and age in which ERB was subject to, you will find some rousing, great stories where the good guys win, honor has meaning, and yet, TARZAN is nobody' s fool!

For criminy sakes, I'll be 70 years old this year and these books THRILL me as much as they did when I read them as a teenager. As far as I'm concerned, Mr. Burroughs was the best story teller in history - John Carter of Mars, the Tarzan series, and zillions of other great story plots. What an imagination this author had.

The first book will stand the test of time. A great adventure with compelling characters. The rest formulaic with dated sensibilities and offensive steriotyping.

As a young girl I was enchanted with "The Return of Tarzan," but I didn't have access to the other books in the series. This inexpensive collection was fun to read -- I enjoyed every book. Burroughs was not a literary giant (his books are simply written, somewhat repetitive, and approach corny at times) but he had an impressive imagination and was able to insert a staggering number of plot turns into each book; the tempo never lagged! He delighted in describing how isolated cultures in lost civilizations developed. The books reflect the social attitudes of the era in which they were written -- they are certainly not politically correct today! Obviously, Burroughs was a fan of Darwin's theories -- which amused me not infrequently. I was interested in how he interwove world events (such as WWII) into the stories. His prejudices are clearly manifested, which is fine, he doesn't try to disguise them. Doubtless I will enjoy these book another time. Those who have fond memmories of the Tarzan franchise will have an enjoyable time reading this series.

Edgar Rice Burroughs is a master story teller. Who doesn't love a great Tarzan Classic Book Collection? I recommend this book for the quality in which it was formatted and also for the great story. I plan on buying all of these ebooks in the Tarzan Classic Books Collection. I love having the original covers also.

I loved this! It a sweet, moving, romantic set of novels! My only critisism is that it is very repetative after the first few b
