THE MOON MEN and THE RED HAWK:
A Comparison of the Argosy All-Story Weekly Magazine Text
versus the A.C. McClurg First Edition Text

by Jerry L. Schneider

"The Moon Men", the second story in a trilogy, first appeared, as a serial in the Argosy All-Story Weekly pulp magazine in 1925. "The Red Hawk", the final story in the trilogy, was also published as a serial in the same pulp magazine, also in 1925. In 1926, the first hardcover edition was published by A. C. McClurg and Company. It contained all three parts of the trilogy ("The Moon Maid" was the first story in the book). In order to combine a full-length novel and two short novels into one book, the text for "The Moon Men" was reduced by over 11,600 words, and the text for "The Red Hawk" was reduced by almost 3,500 words.

This book compares the magazine texts, side-by-side, with the first edition book texts for scholars and laymen to see the alterations the author performed on the text.

TARZAN OF THE APES:
A Comparison Between the A.C. McClurg First Edition Text
versus the Ballantine Books/Gutenberg Text

by Jerry L. Schneider

"Tarzan of the Apes" first appeared, complete, in the October 1912 issue of The All-Story pulp magazine. In June 1914, the first hardcover edition was published by A. C. McClurg and Company. Between these two appearances of the story, the author, Edgar Rice Burroughs, modified the original magazine text because of an error in it (he included tigers in Africa!). While fixing this error, he polished/rewrote portions of the story, finishing with an additional 2,000 words of text.

In July 1963, Ballantine Books published the story in paperback. In their fourth printing in August 1966, they began editing and abridging the text. In the fifth printing in April 1969, they censored the text. In August 1993, Gutenberg.org uploaded an electronic text based on this fifth printing--the censored, edited, and abridged version.

This book compares the two texts, First Edition and Gutenberg, side-by-side, for scholars and laymen to see the alterations the editors at Ballantine Books performed on the text.

THE ANCESTRY OF EDGAR RICE BURROUGHS
Compiled by Jerry L. Schneider. The ancestral lines of Edgar Rice Burroughs are traced from the first known immigrant to the United States down to Burroughs. His European lines prior to immigration to the U.S. are traced backwards in time in hundreds of Pedigree Charts to the earliest know ancestor. Some of his lines connect to royalty and those lines are traced backwards to the earliest known records (approximately 800 A.D.). This is a great reference book for those interested in his and/or their family history.
