BURROUGHS, Edgar Rice Carson Of Venus. California: Tarzana. 1939.
8vo. Original grey cloth in dustwrapper; pp. 312; near fine.
First edition in second issue dustwrapper (unlaminated). The third in Burroughs's series of novels on Venus and by common consent the finest. It contains some excellent satirical swipes at the Nazis (or 'Zanis') and a Mussolini-type dictator called 'Muso', alongside the usual Burroughsian fare of warrior women and strange lands. It is, as the blurb proclaims, for 'red blooded readers of all ages'.
