AZAN – The Ape Man

IMG_20200420_110618

Curtis Books, London, 1951. Paperback. Condition: Poor. One of the six “Azan the Ape Man” titles published by Curtis Warren Limited in the early 1950s, before they had to cease and desist when the Edgar Rice Burroughs estate took them to court for being way too obvious about ripping off the Tarzan idea. Garron was a pen name of David Arthur Griffiths, an editor at Curtis Warren. A paperback original. Great cover art by Terry Maloney, of knife-wielding Azan about to rescue a beautiful babe tied to a stake. All the Azan titles are uncommon. Unfortunately this one is in poor shape The spine is all but missing (repaired with “Magic” Tape) the staples are rusty and the paper is just starting to show it’s 70 years– Size: 12mo – over 6¾” – 7¾” tall.

Thanks to Black Falcon Books for the info.

I can’t find a copy for sale on t’internet so I am offering this one for £25.00.
