Breaking news - Tarzan is NOT censored here!

Late breaking news - we take special pride that we are presenting you with the unexpurgated and unabridged 1914 McClurg first editon text of Tarzan of the Apes! 

In 1969, Ballantine Books was authorized by the Burroughs estate to issue a censored version of Tarzan, so as not offend any civil rights era mentalities. This bowdlerized text has permeated the information space such that any printed texts of this work you may get today are very likely to be the censored version (this includes the bowdlerized text available at project Gutenberg!).

We are especially proud to offer this work as Edgar Rice Burroughs himself wanted it presented to the world. 100% what ERB wished. This is the real thing!
