The Publisher’s Limited Edition
Back to the Stone Age
by Edgar Rice Burroughs™
Printout Version in
the printing plates for Back to the Stone Age were discovered
- stored in their original wooden shipping crates. They are
thought to be the only surviving set of plates for any Burroughs book.
While most plates were used for as many as 30 printings, these plates were
only used once – to print the first edition in 1937. Back to
the Stone Age was the only pre-war Burroughs title not reprinted
by either ERB Inc. or Grosset & Dunlap. That is until now.
This Publisher’s Limited Edition for Back to the
Stone Age will be the first book published by ERB Inc. in almost
50 years, and their first book to feature multiple color illustrations
– stunning works by some of the best ERB artists past and present.
It will be printed in the same way ERB books were made 80 years ago – only
better. A master printer will use the original plates to letterpress
print the text on premium paper which will be sewn and cased into a vintage-style
binding. Each of the 300 books produced will be signed, numbered
and covered in a dust jacket produced by Phil Normand.
And most importantly, every copy of the Publisher’s
edition will include one of the first edition plates used to print this
edition – all housed in a custom clamshell presentation box.
The Publisher’s Edition will include:
• A First Edition Printing Plate for Back to

for the first edition & again in 2015.
