Some of these copies are with printed labels affixed to front endpapers reading: "This book is one of the few survivors of a near-disastrous fire that occurred in our store-room on Saturday, May 3, 1958. The fire started as a result of the spontaneous combustion of old Tarzan motion pictures printed on nitrate film. Although this book shows some fire damage, we are told that it has considerable value among collectrs. We sincerely hope it will add to the worth of your own personal collection."
Accompanied by reprint price list, which justifies said label and announces the publication of an otherwise unpublished ERB story: I am a barbarian; also included in this lot. Red cloth boards (20 cm. tall), with gilt lettering and full jacket.
