- The Krenkel Smilodon poster arrived today along with the extra ETERNAL LOVER poster. While I agree that the Smilodon poster is fairly rough, it compares
nicely with Charles R. Knight's 1903 painting of old S. fatalis roaring his defiance at the world. I trained in zoology and have always had an interest in
paleontology and still fondly remember picking up the Ace edition of AT THE EARTH'S CORE while in junior high (I couldn't believe the quality of Krenkel's art
and assumed it was a period piece from the pulps). I finally realized that ERB wasn't just a name on the cover of Tarzan comics but an actual author. All of
those old Ace, Ballantine, Canaveral, and earlier editions have resided in my library for decades and any of the older editions that I bought without jackets
are now modestly covered. I just finished re-reading LAND OF TERROR in the recent Grosset & Dunlap special edition and have ordered a copy of SAVAGE
PELLUCIDAR. These are expensive bur exceptionally well produced.

- I read your book recently and just wanted to say how much I enjoyed it. Lots of interesting and informative articles, and I liked your personal story about
meeting Edgar Rice Burroughs's son. I also admire your very colourfully illustrated website.
I am writing from London and it was at home there in my early teens when (I'm guessing it was 1975 for the anniversary of ERB's birth) the BBC showed all
the Johnny Weismuller films. That led to a family discussion about which was more realistic Weismuller or Ron Ely's portrayal of Tarzan and a relative
encouraged me to read the original Tarzan of the Apes book. I was fascinated from the start and moved by the ending (his noble act of self renunciation).
From then on I was hooked on ERB's wonderfully imaginative and exciting books in every genre (buying them second hand or new as I could manage) and
did get a nice response from Danton Burroughs after sending an enquiry. I still have the paperbacks and the lavish Irwin Porges biography, the former
which I have added to or re-read every once in a while.
By the way there have been some great portrayals of Tarzan, even if not true to the book, but for me Ron Ely stands out.
Work, home and community activities take up quite a bit of time so I have missed much of the incredible amount of ERB stuff on the internet but your book
has probably re-awakened my dormant interest (not that it was every far from the surface).

- Thanks for the Djs, especially the "pink" TotA and "The Monster Men.
[If you are curious, you'll find the "pink" TotA here.}

- [This customer sent me a rebound book for which he wanted variant DJ. I had to resize almost from scratch, but it turned out well.]  
DJ looks great!  Really perfect for
that book.  Also, you were right about how good that painting looks as a DJ for a hardcover book

- {
i recently had to delay preparing an order. I therefore sent a msg to the customer. His reply follows.] You have always been so great and your products are so great;
I could never be anything but pleased! I didn’t realize there had been any delay! Using your facsimile dust covers has enhanced the presentation of my
Burroughs books to an unexpected level and added to my joy of owning and displaying those precious gems of his imagination.Thank you for your part in
preserving his legacy!

- [
A customer recently purchased two posters. He sent the followng email and photo. ]  The "ERB corner" in the "spare" bedroom (my bedroom) is looking better and better.























- Just letting you know that your latest dust jackets for me arrived a couple days ago--perfect in every way.

- I  want to thank you for the great collection of dust jackets I ordered, and also the fine book you sent along.

- I received my package in fine condition. Thank you so much for the additional jacket. You did a fantastic job on it. The dilemma now is, do I just change the
original or buy an additional book to cover it with. Take care and I hope this message finds you in good health.

- The covers arrived today and, of course, they are beautiful.  It's difficult to express the emotion of seeing them on their books again--probably after about
55 years in my case.

- A great book.  I’m sorry I’ve taken so long to get back to you but I’ve been “busy”.  Not so busy that I wasn’t able to read it cover to cover.  A lot of good
solid information with no fluff.  Now that things are quieting down for me I want to get back to searching out more of ERB’s books.  Of course your book
came with no damage. The way you package things how could there be any damage?

- I received the latest batch of DJs and they are terrific as usual.  I now have 75 of your Variant DJs and all of my nearly 200 “keeper” Burroughs hardcovers
(I have another few hundred that I will be getting rid of) have an original DJ or a variant DJ or both.  So, I will probably not be buying many more DJs in the
future.  In any event, it has been a great pleasure doing business with you and I hope our paths cross again.

- Thank you for the Great dust jackets, They are beautiful!

- I’m not sure how many jackets I bought over the last year, and I’m not sure I want to know. But there were two sets of ERB books and one set of the Tom
Swifts, minus the ones I had in original dust jackets. There was a whole lot of ‘em, anyway. That’s the safest thing to say. Some of these books, when I
acquired them on eBay, came with reproduction jackets. But I could put them on the shelf side by side with yours and tell the difference. Poor paper, wrong
brightness, wrong color tone to the image – something was always off. Or the flaps weren’t full – they’d be cut off to fit the size of paper in a standard color
printer. Yours were far superior. I replaced all those amateurish reproduction jackets with yours.
I know there are some high-end makers of jackets for the ERB first editions, and their products look absolutely first rate, as you’ve noted on your website,
but there is a substantial price difference. If you’ve always read ERB in the Grosset and Dunlap editions, as I have, you’re the only one who sells jackets for
those. And if you’ve got a lot of books to cover – a whole lot – reprints and firsts -- I think you strike the right balance between quality and affordability.
I thought it amazing that you also had the Tom Swift series on your site as well. I already had the series, most of it jacketless. I guess we have the same
reading tastes. Great minds and all that. Your “cleaned up” series of jackets, with a white background, I would argue, offers an improvement on the
originals.
Now, if I could just find jackets for my Rover Boys set.

- I wanted to pass along a photo that may interest you. This is what the complete Tom Swift series looks like in a nice fresh set of your repro jackets. They
really dress those old books up! Certainly these jackets are an improvement over the unjacketed books, but I would say they also are an improvement over
the original jackets. The originals were rather crude to begin with, printed on what looks like brown shopping-bag paper, and they have only become more
unreadable over time with exposure to sunlight and acid decomposition.
My thought has always been that if you’re going to buy a repro dust jacket for an old book, it ought to look brand-new. These certainly do the trick!
Thanks for your good work on these. The Tom Swift books have earned a place of honor on my bookshelf alongside my Hardy Boys books and all those ERB
novels I covered earlier. Now I just need a bookshelf large enough to showcase them all!






















- The DJ order arrived today...first thank you for the two bonus jackets...the bonus Princess of Mars was much appreciated as I have two firsts - one without
a DJ, so it is now in use.  I don't have a first of the Cave Girl but now I will have to put it on my later edition for fun.
Great...GREAT quality...it's fun to see my heretofore cover-less firsts with DJs for the first time in nearly 100 years...I'll be ordering for a few more of my DJ
less books....thanks, again...

- Letting you know I received my book cover today in great shape! Wanted to thank you & letting you know I need a couple more & will be ordering soon!
Take care!

- [
A customer in England mentioned in an email, that although his facsimile for The Deputy Sheriff of Comanche County was beautiful, the fit on the book
seemed small. In response I corrected my printer settings which I thought might be the problem, reprinted the jacket, and mailed it as soon as I could.
His response follows.]
Sorry, I've not been in touch sooner; I've just returned home from the family summer holiday to find a replacement DJ for Deputy Sheriff waiting for me. I
feel a bit guilty about it as it really wasn't necessary for you to go to the trouble and expense of doing this; I was very happy with the original DJ and as I
stated [in my first email] I wasn't complaining, simply feeding back.
However, the replacement jacket is now absolutely perfect. There is no doubt it is a better fit than the original one that you sent. A beautiful job!  I
cannot fault you on customer service here. You clearly take a pride in providing the best possible jackets that you can. Rest assured that when I am
ready for my next facsimile jacket you will hear from me! Thank you once again for all you have done to make me completely satisfied, which I am.

- I received the latest batch of DJs and they are terrific as usual.  I now have 75 of your Variant DJs and all of my nearly 200 “keeper” Burroughs hardcovers
(I have another few hundred that I will be getting rid of) have an original DJ or a variant DJ or both.  So, I will probably not be buying many more DJs in the
future.  In any event, it has been a great pleasure doing business with you and I hope our paths cross again.

- This is a fan letter for your website.  I just pulled out boxes of my comic book and book collection and started looking for DJs for my ERB books...and, of
course, I found you...and just placed an order for my first edition Tarzan books...when i find the remaining boxes of ERB books I'll be ordering for those, too.
Hard to believe that when I was buying these back in the late '50's and early '60's I'd pass up those books in almost new DJs for uncovered copies..but, hey,
to this kid born in 1948 the difference between .35 and a buck was almost two extra books!  I "discovered" Tarzan when I was around 5 when my parents
bought me a Dell GIANT TARZAN...and they read and read it to me...I was hooked...my first Tarzan books were the G&D books when I was around 9 ...a local
book store had one in the kids' section; I cajoled my parents to buy it for me and my father casually asked the clerk if they had any more...he proceeded to
open a storage cabinet below the display book cases and there were half a dozen more!!  I was hooked....along with the Tom Swift books I was seeking out I
added all ERB books to my want list as I visited used book stores for comic books...boy, those were the days...and then the '60's and ERBdom, etc...so much
fun getting fanzines in the mail...I even published 3 issues of my own in the early '60's and had contacted Harry Habilitz to write an article on Burne Hogarth...
excerpts from it showed up in the Watson Guptil Hogarth book...but I'm rambling...just wanted to thank you for such an informative site (still lots more to
explore) and the labor of love in creating these great DJs...thanks, . . .

-  just wanted you to know that I received my "John Carter of Mars" dustjacket in along with the extra Variant cover of "Savage Pellucidar"! Pleasantly
surprised to receive the extra cover but just to let you know that a while back I bought a Canaveral Press hardback of that same book! While it had an
original Krenkel jacket it also had some water damage to it! So this works out great for me! I have bought quite a few facsmile covers lately from another
seller but at MORE than twice that I paid to you! So from now on I will be looking to you FIRST before I look elsewhere! Thank you so much for your excellent
service and to let you know that if anyone else I come across Is looking for covers I will be directing them to you! Thanks Charlie! Happy New Year! :^)

- Thanks so much for the DJ's. They are perfect. I just bought a first of Tarzan Twins and the jacket looks great. My Oakdale Affair/Rider has only a partial
original DJ and I've slipped yours under and it works perfectly. My 71 b'day is coming up and I'll be purchasing more from you soon.

- The latest order just arrived—all terrific. You know, it’s kind of funny, but after a year of ordering jackets every paycheck or two, I can finally see the light
at the end of the tunnel – eight more Tom Swift jackets to go! (Though I do have a few more ERB duplicates that may be worth covering – and maybe,
eventually, I’ll start picking up a few more first editions.)
Will send the next order my next payday, as usual.

[I don't have an Erbville press edition of The Girl from Hollywood; so, I told the customer he would have to send the book to me if he wanted me to design a DJ for it. Upon
receiving the book, I mounted a variant dust jacket on it, and sent the book and new jacket back. His acknowledgement email follows.]
- Girl From Hollywood book arrived today. Looks great, just what I had in mind.

- The
Savage Pellucidar DJ came in today and boy does it look terrific. What an improvement over the jacket that Canaveral produced for that title. That
jacket alone would have sold copies of that book.

-  The latest order just arrived—all terrific. You know, it’s kind of funny, but after a year of ordering jackets every paycheck or two, I can finally see the light
at the end of the tunnel – eight more Tom Swift jackets to go! (Though I do have a few more ERB duplicates that may be worth covering – and maybe,
eventually, I’ll start picking up a few more first editions.)  Will send the next order my next payday, as usual.


- Just received the dust jacket for one of the Tom Swift books that I ordered from you. Great printing that you've managed to do to recreate these.
Books like these will turn up from time to time in the second-hand stores, but you almost never see the dust jackets.  It's great to see the original art which
adds so much. I'll definitely keep you in mind as i find more of these for the collection.

- Love the jackets! They really dress up these faded and tattered old books. Buying coverless copies is probably the only way to keep this affordable. My
pace has slowed down a bit, but I've actually been picking up a few first editions lately, when the prices haven't been astronomical. So many more still to
get.

ABOUT THIS SITE
The primary purpose of this site is, of course, to sell facsimile and variant dust jackets for the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs (often aka ERB
throughout this site).  However, I've also tried to create a colorful, interesting site that also informs the visitor about the life, works, illustrators,
publishing, and collecting of ERB.  Scattered throughout the site you'll find information blocks like the one on the right below about ERB in
WWII that highlight some aspect of the world of ERB.  I hope I have succeeded in making the site as enjoyable as possible.  
                                                                                                                                                                                         Thanks,
                                                                                                                                                                                         Charlie  
Ray Bradbury has written that “Burroughs . . .  probably changed more destinies than any other writer in
America.”  Hyberbole aside, no one doubts that he is one of  the most widely read and influential writers of
the Twentieth Century, inspiring people as diverse as Carl Sagan, Jane Goodall, Robert Heinlein, Arthur C.
Clarke, Gore Vidal, George Lucas, Ray Bradbury, Ronald Reagan. . . and worldwide, millions more.
Edgar Rice Burroughs - c. 1935
Edgar Rice Burroughs was too old to see active
service in World War II ~ he was 66 at the time of
the Pearl Harbor attack [which he witnessed] ~ but
as an established writer he served the war effort
by becoming a war correspondent. He was the
oldest war correspondent to serve in the Pacific
theater, flying from island to island (even bumping
into his son Hulbert, who was serving as a war
photographer), reporting on troop activities,  going
out on bombing runs with the 7th Air Force.

Burroughs would not come out of this period in his
life unscathed.  For a man his age the stresses and
strains of travel in rough conditions on military
flights and various warships, living in often poor,
tropical conditions, weakened him and worsened a
chronic heart condition.  In poor health, he
returned home where he died in his bed reading
the Sunday comics in 1950.
Edgar Rice Burroughs (September 1, 1875 – March 19, 1950)  is the
successful author of more than 75 novels, the most famous being his series
of Tarzan novels.    

An admitted ne'er-do-well, failing in any job he tried, Burroughs turned to
writing in his thirties in a desperate belief that he couldn't do any worse than
others he had read.  For the rest of his life, year after year, with only a four
year break for WWII, he would turn out pot-boilers at a phenomenal rate and
in the process create some of the most beloved and enduring works of
adventure, fantasy and science fiction written anywhere on the planet. His
third book brought to the world the most familiar and popular character in all
of fiction, Tarzan of the Apes.

Readers of all types and all occupations have affirmed Burroughs’ influence
on them, particularly in their formative, adolescent years.   In this context it is
difficult to overstate the influence of Burroughs' books. Until recently if you
read science-fiction when you were young, then you read Burroughs.  Within
science fiction, Burroughs’ writing is a part of the genre's roots, and few
modern SF authors, and many non-SF, can claim that they have not been
influenced by Burroughs to a greater or lesser degree.  
erbgraphics.com - Dust Jackets for the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs   
This site's purpose is to provide facsimile copies of dust jackets for the works of Edgar Rice Burroughs, the master of the adventure novel, at an affordable price for as high a quality as I can
produce to the millions of readers and collectors who love a good story well told.

Showcase #1: Variant DJ for Canaveral and G&D editions of The Monster Men—Front cover illustration by P. J. Monahan
Is it legal to use the Krenkel/Frazetta art from the ACE Books editions of the 1960s?

Yes, because all are in the public domain and usable by anyone.

For reasons actually unknown, the 1960s ACE books editor, Donald Wolheim, did not copyright the Roy G. Krenkel and Frank
Frazetta art used on these iconic paperback editions. I've heard from reliable sources that since Wolheim believed that the titles
themselves had fallen into the public domain, copyrighting them would be pointless. Whether this is true or not is unknown to me.
However, I do know that all of this art is now in the public domain.
Go here for information about purchase.
See "POSTERS" page for purchase information.
I like the J. Allen St. John dust jacket illustration for the pre-war editions of this title.  St. John is unsurpassed, and I recognize his pre-
eminence.  I'm not seeking to replace his effort.  I'm simply offering this alternative for those who want one for their Canaveral or G&D book.
