THE KNICKERBOCKER CLASSICS
TARZAN OF THE APES
RETURN OF TARZAN
By Edgar Rice Burroughs
“THE KNICKERBOCKER CLASSICS bring together the essential works of classic authors in stunning editions to be collected and enjoyed. Each elegantly designed cloth-bound softcover features an elastic closure, as well as a comprehensive introduction, providing the reader with enlightening information on the author’s life and works”.
Just to look at the book and to hold it in your hands is a delight. The book is beautifully bound and it is the perfect weight, which makes it feel so special to read. The paper chosen is a lovely off white colour which feels easy and comfortable to read. Margins are wide in case you would like to make any notations or simply be able to hold the page comfortably. The minimalist design in the body of the work allows you to enjoy the story without any unnecessary distractions – just like a good old fashion story book.
“This volume collects the first two books of Edgar Rice Burroughs’ extensive Tarzan series, Tarzan of the Apes (1912) and Te Return of Tarzar (1913). They follow the adventures of John Clayton, a man who was raised by apes after the death of his parents in the African wilderness.”
The pleasure of reading this story is further enriched by a comprehensive introduction providing the reader with enlightening information on the life and work of Edgar Rice Burroughs and some additional recommended reading, which I think it is a very clever and useful addition on this edition.
The clothbound softcover features an elastic band which means your book will be better protected whether you choose to read it at home or on the go.
