Golden Lion Cast Autographs
This edition was published by Grosset & Dunlap in conjunction with release of the 1927 silent film Tarzan And The Golden Lion. Shortly after publication, there was a dinner banquet to celebrate the publication of the book and commemorating the film in which many important people involved with production of film signed interior frontispiece. There were 20-25 copies of the book signed by this group of people.

The images featured here are of ERB's personal copy signed by members of the cast and people involved in the production and book.  These include: Edgar Rice Burroughs; James H. Pierce, J. P. McGowan, the director; Joseph P. Kennedy (father of JFK and RFK), who was a financial backer, shifting some of his money from the illicit liquor trade into film distribution; Boris Karloff, who played Ozawa; D'Arcy Corrigan, who played Weesimbo; Robert Bolder, who played John Peebles; Harold Goodwin, who played Burton Bradney; Frederick Peters, who played Esteban Miranda; publishers Alexander Grosset and George Dunlap; Film Booking Offices of America Vice President Joseph I. Schnitzer; film producer Edwin C. King; technical director Major F.J. Franklin; and two others. 

There is a later inscription on the front pastedown, by Florence, "This copy was given to me by my husband Edgar Rice Burroughs, April 4, 1936. Florence Gilbert Burroughs," and thirty years later, "(This book was ERB's own copy, which he gave to Florence while they were married. Edward Gilbert, Dec. 30, 1996)."
