Carl Sagan. . . and Barsoom
ERBzine 1384:  An ERB Fan Tribute: Carl Sagan
From the VOA broadcast: The year is nineteen-forty-seven. Twelve-year-old Carl Sagan is standing outside a small house in the eastern city of Brooklyn, New York. It is dark. He is looking up at the sky. After a few minutes, he finds the spot for which he has been searching. It is a light red color in the night sky. Carl is looking at the planet Mars.
"I can remember as a child reading with breathless fascination the Mars novels of Edgar Rice Burroughs. . . . I can remember spending many an hour in my boyhood, arms resolutely outstretched in an empty field, imploring what I believed to be Mars to transport me there."

Dear Mr. Hillman,
I must prepare for a Planetarium, in Milan, Italy, an evening about  "Mars in science fiction". Unfortunately, all Barsoom illustrations I  found show only the hero fighting the villains or the monsters. Could  you... send me the scan of some more detailed picture of Barsoom, its  cities, scenes and inhabitants?
