About the Author
Edgar Rice Burroughs, 1875-1950
Edgar Rice Burroughs is renowed for his many novels of fantastic adventure. Unquestionably his best-known creation is that of the jungle hero, Tarzan the Ape Man, but almost as well known are his stories of other planets beginning with the very popular Mars series. A torrent of novels followed: stories about Venus, tales of the Moon and of the middle Earth, westerns, and detective stories. In all, nearly one hundred stories bore Edgar Rice Burroughs' name.
Born in Chicago in 1875, he tried his hand at many businesses without notable success, until at the age of thirty-five, he turned to writing. With the publication of Tarzan of the Apes and A Princess of Mars, his career was assured. By the time of his death in 1950, at his home in a town bearing the name of his best known work, Tarzana, California over 40 million copies of Edgar Rice Burroughs books have appeared in 58 different languages.

I highly recommend the John Carter books; I just recommend that you get them in an edition that preserves their original state.
These Volumes, WHILE BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY OTHER WAY, are INCOMPLETE!!! They do NOT include the introductions and forwards present in almost all of the books!!! THESE ARE AN INTEGRAL PART OF THE JC STORY!!
Boycott these volumes until Disney makes them COMPLETE!
Burroughs' prose is excellent and highly readable. It is more than possible to read through the entire book in one sitting without ever feeling fatigued or having to skip the 'boring bits', as there simply aren't any. This book is highly recommended for anyone who loves good, old-fashion (and clean -- I'm looking at you, Red Gloves) adventure stories and anybody who like Biggles or Tarzan should also thoroughly enjoy this.
It was cheaper to get this than buy each individually.
It was a god price and arrived fast.
