The Tarzan Series
Art by Paul PriviteraTarzan is the son of a British Lord and Lady who were marooned on the West coast of Africa by mutineers. When Tarzan was a year old, his mother died of natural causes, and his father was killed by Kerchak, leader of the ape tribe into which Tarzan was adopted. Tarzan's tribe of apes is known as the Mangani, Great Apes of a species unknown to science. Kala is his ape mother. Tarzan (White-skin) is his ape name; his English name is John Clayton, Lord Greystoke (the formal title is Viscount Greystoke according to Burroughs in Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle; Earl of Greystoke in later, non-canonical sources, notably the 1984 movie Greystoke). In fact, Burroughs, as narrator of Tarzan of the Apes, describes both Clayton and Greystoke as fictitious names – implying that, within the fictional world that Tarzan inhabits, he may have a different real name.

As a young adult, Tarzan meets a young American woman, Jane Porter, who along with her father and others of their party is marooned at exactly the same spot on the African coast where Tarzan's parents were twenty years earlier. When she returns to America, he leaves the jungle in search of her, his one true love. In later books, Tarzan and Jane marry and he lives with her for a time in England. They have one son, Jack, who takes the ape name Korak ("the Killer"). Tarzan is contemptuous of the hypocrisy of civilization, and he and Jane return to Africa, making their home on an extensive estate that becomes a base for Tarzan's later adventures.

In Tarzan, Burroughs created an extreme example of a hero figure largely unalloyed with character flaws or faults. He is described as being Caucasian, extremely athletic, tall, handsome, and tanned, with grey eyes and black hair. Emotionally, he is courageous, loyal and steady. He is intelligent and learns new languages easily. He is presented as behaving ethically, at least by Burroughs' definitions, in most situations, except when seeking vengeance under the motivation of grief, as when his ape mother Kala is killed in Tarzan of the Apes, or when he believes Jane has been murdered in Tarzan the Untamed. He is deeply in love with his wife and totally devoted to her; in numerous situations where other women express their attraction to him, Tarzan politely but firmly declines their attentions. When presented with a situation where a weaker individual or party is being preyed upon by a stronger foe, Tarzan invariably takes the side of the weaker party. In dealing with other men Tarzan is firm and forceful. With male friends he is reserved but deeply loyal and generous. As a host he is likewise generous and gracious. As a leader he commands devoted loyalty.

In contrast to these noble characteristics, Tarzan's philosophy embraces an extreme form of "return to nature". Although he is able to pass within society as a civilized individual, he prefers to "strip off the thin veneer of civilization", as Burroughs often puts it.[6] His preferred dress is a knife and a loincloth of animal hide, his preferred abode is a convenient tree branch which happens to be nearby when he desires to sleep, and his favored food is raw meat, killed by himself; even better if he is able to bury it a week so that putrefaction has had a chance to tenderize it a bit.

Tarzan's primitivist philosophy was absorbed by countless fans, amongst whom was Jane Goodall, who describes the Tarzan series as having a major influence on her childhood. She states that she felt she would be a much better spouse for Tarzan than his fictional wife, Jane, and that when she first began to live among and study the chimpanzees she was fulfilling her childhood dream of living among the great apes just as Tarzan did.

Tarzan of the Apes
The novel tells the story of John Clayton, born in the western coastal jungles of equatorial Africa to a marooned couple from England, John and Alice (Rutherford) Clayton, Lord and Lady Greystoke. Adopted as an infant by the she-ape Kala after his parents died (his father is killed by the savage king ape Kerchak), Clayton is named "Tarzan" ("White Skin" in the ape language) and raised in ignorance of his human heritage. 

Feeling alienated from his peers due to their physical differences, he discovers his true parents' cabin, where he first learns of others like himself in their books, with which he eventually teaches himself to read.

On his return from one visit to the cabin, he is attacked by a huge gorilla which he manages to kill with his father's knife, although he is terribly wounded in the struggle. As he grows up, Tarzan becomes a skilled hunter, gradually arousing the jealousy of Kerchak, the ape leader.

Later, a tribe of black Africans settles in the area, and Kala is killed by one of its hunters. Avenging himself on the killer, Tarzan begins an antagonistic relationship with the tribe, raiding its village for weapons and practicing cruel pranks on them. They, in turn, regard him as an evil spirit and attempt to placate him.

The twelve short stories Burroughs wrote later and collected as Jungle Tales of Tarzan occur in the period immediately following the arrival of the natives, the killing of Kala, and Tarzan's vengeance. Finally Tarzan has amassed so much credit among the apes of the tribe that the envious Kerchak at last attacks him. In the ensuing battle Tarzan kills Kerchak and takes his place as "king" of the apes. Subsequently, a new party of whites is marooned on the coast, including Jane Porter, the first white woman Tarzan has ever seen. Tarzan's cousin, William Cecil Clayton, unwitting usurper of the ape man's ancestral English estate, is also among the party. Tarzan spies on the newcomers, aids them, and saves Jane from the perils of the jungle. Absent when they are rescued, he is introduced further into the mysteries of civilization by French Naval Officer Paul D'Arnot, whom he saves from the natives. D'Arnot teaches Tarzan French and how to behave among white men, as well as serving as his guide to the nearest colonial outposts.

Ultimately, Tarzan travels to Jane's native Baltimore, Maryland only to find that she is now in the woods of Wisconsin. Tarzan finally meets Jane in Wisconsin where they renew their acquaintance and he learns the bitter news that she has become engaged to William Clayton. Meanwhile, clues from his parents' cabin have enabled D'Arnot to prove Tarzan's true identity. Instead of claiming his inheritance, Tarzan chooses rather to conceal and renounce his heritage for the sake of Jane's happiness.

A page from that first-ever Tarzan story, written in Edgar Rice Burroughs' own hand.
You'll see that ERB originally christened his jungle character "Zantar," then "Tublat Zan," then, finally, "Tarzan"!
Note that "Bloomstoke" became "Greystoke."

ERB's Handwritten Manuscript page

The story's title page shows that ERB submitted his work under the pseudonym "Normal Bean."
But when the story was printed in "The All-Story Magazine," October 1912,
a transcription error transformed Burroughs' pen name into "Norman Bean."

This is the last page of ERB's hand-written manuscript for Tarzan of the Apes.
Burroughs signs his name at the bottom along with the time and date of completion:
May 14, 1912 ~ 10:25 P.M.

Contract for Tarzan of the Apes
Chicago: April 13, 1914

Printed and typed contract between Edgar Rice Burroughs and A.C. McClurg & Co. for the book publication of Tarzan of the Apes, signed by Burroughs, Ogden S. McClurg (President of A.C. McClurg & Co.), and two witnesses. On the rectos of two sheets of legal-size paper, 13x8½.

Original signed agreement for the book publication of one of the most famous and influential literary creations of the 20th century, the first edition of Tarzan of the Apes. Though A Princess of Mars had been published in magazine form in the spring of 1912 (under the pseudonym of "Norman Bean), it was Tarzan, written during the first six months of 1912, and published complete in the October, 1912, issue of The All-Story, who was Burroughs' most famous and enduring character,  and the foundation of his enormous success.

 A year and a half later he signed this contract with McClurg for his first book publication, with many more to come. Upon this foundation was built his vast empire based upon books, films, radio programs, newspaper comic strips, and many advertising campaigns featuring Tarzan. Burroughs even lived in his own city, Tarzana, developed from the 540 acre ranch in the San Fernando Valley he purchased in 1919. ERB, as he became known to his many fans and readers, had come far since his struggles to support his family with myriad jobs and enterprises prior to his excursion into pulp literature. The contract itself is a standard agreement, McClurg to publish the manuscript in book form "at its own expense and in such style and manner and in such quantity as it deems most expedient," with plans to sell it at $1.25 per copy. Burroughs was to receive a royalty of 10% upon the first 5000 copies, 12½% upon the second 5000, and 15% thereafter (there were about 10,000 copies printed for McClurg in 1914). Burroughs was also to receive gratis 12 copies of the book, and he could purchase additional copies at a discount of 40% off the retail price. He was to be paid an advance of $250. This is the McClurg file copy of the contract, with "Original" written in pencil at the top of the first page, and docketed in ink on the back of the second page, "Tarzan of the Apes, Agreement with Edgar Rice Burroughs, April 30, 1914."

Old tape repairs to splits at the folds, with discoloration and bleeding from them, wear and tape stains to the lower edge of the first leaf, a few small edge chips, else very good, a landmark piece in the pantheon of Tarzan, Lord of the Jungle.

First Review of Tarzan of the Apes Book Release
New York Times 1914 
On Sunday, June 14, 1914, the New York Times mentioned Edgar Rice Burroughs and Tarzan for the first time. 
"The New York Times Review of Books: 

One Hundred Books for Summer Reading" included ERB’s forthcoming TARZAN OF THE APES. Of course, TARZAN OF THE APES had appeared in "The All-Story" magazine in 1912, but the book was due for release on June 17, 1914.

The Times would publish a more formal (but hardly longer) review on July 5.

The Times paragraph suggested a certain skepticism: “The author has evidently tried to see how far he could go without exceeding the limits of possibility.” Nevertheless, there it is.

Summary — (Ballantine Books Blurb)
Deep in the savage African jungle, the baby Tarzan was raised by a fierce she-ape of the tribe of Kerchak. There he had to learn the secrets of the wild to survive—how to talk with animals, swing through the trees, and fight against the great predators. He grew to the strength and courage of his fellow apes. And in time, his human intelligence promised him the kingship of the tribe. He became truly Lord of the Jungle. Then men entered his jungle, bringing with them the wanton savagery of civilized greed and  lust—and bringing also the first white woman Tarzan had ever seen. Now suddenly, Tarzan had to choose between two worlds.

Letter to ERB Biographer H.H. Heins from Ballantine:
August 20, 1969
Albany, New York
Dear Rev. Heins:
TARZAN OF THE APES was reset in April, 1969, - the 5th printing. The Burroughs family requested that certain material be deleted. The book contained some material that would now be offensive to certain groups or nationalities and they felt that this should be removed from the book. In order to do this the book was set in a different type which accounts for the difference in page length.

This is a copy of the inscription, in the form of a letter, which ERB presented to his wife Emma
when his first book, Tarzan of the Apes, arrived in the mail
from the Chicago A.C. McClurg publishers on June 10, 1914.
Unfortunately, this book was one of 26 rare and valuable copies stolen
on May 26, 1982 from the vaults at ERB, Inc. in Tarzana.


This is an inscription on Tarzan of the Apes, inscribed by Edgar Rice Burroughs to His Brother, Henry Studley Burroughs and Sister-in-Law.
Tarzan of the Apes. Chicago: A. C. McClurg & Co., 1914. First edition, first issue (with no "acorn" device on the spine, and with the W. F. Hall imprint in Old English on the copyright page).
Inscribed by Burroughs on the front free endpaper (which is loose):
"To Henry Studley Burroughs/and his good wife, Ella/Frances Odhams, from/their low-brow brother,with/a bunch of love/Edgar Rice Burroughs".
Elsewhere in this book is a printed (silver gelatin) image of Tarzan and a group of apes mourning the death of an ape, signed by Burroughs' nephew (and frequent illustrator) Studley Oldham Burroughs ("S O Burroughs") affixed to the blank page facing page 1. Also with the bookplate of Ella Oldham Burroughs (Edgar Rice Burroughs' sister-in-law and Studley's mother) on the front pastedown.

Tarzan vs Tigers by Monte Moore

Lane Batot's Tiger Discussion

A much-asked question:
"Why Doesn't Tarzan Have A Beard"

Chapter 13: His Own Kind
e-Text edition (temporarily on hold)
"He was worried because he had not clothing to indicate to all the jungle folks that he was a man and not an ape, and grave doubt often entered his mind as to whether he might not yet become an ape.
Was not hair commencing to grow upon his face? All the apes had hair upon theirs but the black men were entirely hairless, with very few exceptions.
True, he had seen pictures in his books of men with great masses of hair upon lip and cheek and chin, but, nevertheless, Tarzan was afraid. Almost daily he whetted his keen knife and scraped and whittled at his young beard to eradicate this degrading emblem of apehood.
And so he learned to shave--rudely and painfully, it is true--but, nevertheless, effectively."
The Post ~ February 1913

 I believe I have found the complete first book of "Tarzan of the Apes" serialized in "The Post" (I believe to be a Kentucky newspaper) from February of 1913.   It seems like a very early printing before the book was printed and I am not sure if it's worth anything or how to find details on worth?    The pages of the paper are all intact and nothing has been cut from the pages that were saved.    I am currently scanning the comic "Osgar Und Adolf" form some of the top of the pages and was wondering if anyone might know anything on a value of the Tarzan story or know someone who would? -Steve Cottle
