In stock



This is the Leatherbound Collector's Edition. About 150 were made for the Kickstarter backers, plus a small overrun; it is now completely sold out everywhere.

A comprehensive illustrated history of ERB's publications in pulps, comics and novels! Fully illustrated. Over 1200 pages, 140,000 words and 5000+ images.

Edgar Rice Burroughs' 100 Year Art Chronology is an illustrative history of all Burroughs' publications in the United States (with a heavy dose of art from the United Kingdom). Written and compiled by Michael Tierney who worked closely with and was officially sanctioned by all the people at Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc. to bring this massive project to life, the narrative gives the history of Burroughs' work and the often legendary artists who visualized it, featuring untold stories, art that hasn't been seen since its release, and pieces that were buried in the vaults from the beginning of his publishing history to the present day.

This 1,200 page examination of the vast publishing illustrative history of Edgar Rice Burroughs is divided into four parts:

Volume 1: The Pulps--The Dawn of the Age of Science Fiction
Volume 2: The Books--Literature With Sharp Cutting Edges
Volume 3: Comics--The Universal Language Part 1
Volume 4: Comics--The Universal Language Part 2 (including UK material)

This project is as much an narrative history of ERB's publications as it is a visual history. Michael Tierney, the author, has combed the archives and gathered together a vast treasure trove of art, from pulp covers, to interior art, from novels that range on both sides of the Atlantic to the vast array of comic books that sported ERB's amazing creations. He's taken these and woven them into a discussion that explores the many facets of the various industries and Burroughs place within them.

Hundreds of cover artists and illustrators are included in these 4 volumes.

Included just in the modern era are:

  • Frazetta Ace paperback covers, Canaveral Press covers and illustrations, and more
  • Neal Adams and Boris Vallejo Tarzan paperback covers
  • Reed Crandall
  • Roy Krenkel
  • Russ Manning
