Classic Covers: Edgar Rice Burroughs

From the pulps of the 20s and 30s to the paperback racks of the 60s and 70s to the comics and films and ebooks of the digital age and beyond, the publishing phenomenon that is Edgar Rice Burroughs encompasses millions of books sold, popular reading tastes changed, and classic tropes established. From John Carter to Tarzan, from Mars to Venus to the Earth’s Core to the Land that Time Forgot — with occasional forays into the Westerns, Historicals, and contemporary Adventure along the way — Burroughs’ fertile imagination and fantastic output has provided the inspiration for many a classic magazine and book cover for over a century.
