ERB, INC. AUTHORIZED VENUS SERIES JACKETS NOW AVAILABLE.
AT LONG LAST the complete series of four dust-jackets for the Venus books is finalized and they're ready for your collection. Hi-res scans of the original ERB, Inc.-owned J. Allen St. John painting for PIRATES OF VENUS and of the original John Coleman Burroughs' ESCAPE ON VENUS art were used to reconstruct these great covers. Read more about what went into making these the best reproductions on the market at The Back Flap blog.
THE RETURN OF TARZAN DUST-JACKET IS GOING THROUGH A FACELIFT!
RIGHT NOW the dust-jacket for THE RETURN OF TARZAN is on hiatus. Though I've managed to make the reproduction as close as possible to the first edition original—and typographically it's right on—it seems that there might be more to be done to get the cover painting closer to its original state. Remember, this is a jacket that is so rare that up until recently there has been only one source available to work from. Read more here. . .
ERB, Inc. DUST-JACKET SURVEY TELLS THE TALE.
BECAUSE OF THE CONFUSION often surrounding the priority of states of dust-jackets for the ERB, Inc. First Editions, and inspired by Patrick Ewing's dust-jacket page at ERBfirsts.com, I initiated a survey of collectors to see if we could identify a pattern among the jackets as to what kinds of coatings were used by them over the years. Our findings revealed some information that has not been widely known previously. Letters and invoices shared by the late Danton Burroughs with Robert Barrett confirmed some dates and products which had been known about but not fully investigated. The entire survey and list of jackets from 1931 to 1948 is now available for only $10.00. Read more here. . .
