The first in the series, very scarce in the jacketFirst edition, first printing, an exceptional example in the dust jacket. At the Earth's Core is the first novel in the Pellucidar series, a classic adventure in a long American tradition of hollow earth stories, uniting Burroughs's trademark jungle adventure with the pseudo scientific flair of Doyle's Professor Challenger and The Lost World.
Octavo. Original grey cloth, titles in black. With the illustrated dust jacket. Housed in a terracotta quarter morocco solander box by the Chelsea Bindery.
Illustrations by J. Allen St. John
The book fine, the dust jacket very good indeed with a closed tear to front panel with some discreet repair, some rubbing to corners and along front spine fold, small patch of repair to head of spine panel including one letter of text.
Bleiler, Supernatural Fiction, p. 93; Zeuschner 9.
