Burroughs, Edgar Rice: At the Earth's Core and Pellucidar, V1.2, 31 Mar 2011

Although HarryT has created a great Pellucidar Omnibus, I'd like to submit an illustrated (with J. Allen St. John's iconic images) epub consisting of the first two Pellucidar novels. I've also included images of the two 1st edition front covers obtained from ERBzine.com

In version 1.2 I replaced the last three images in Pellucidar - the previous images had moire patterns that I couldn't eliminate without starting over on the images using a different lens.

Wow! Gorgeous!

Any chance you could do something similar for Tarzan and John Carter? :P

Hi bobcdy,

Could you tell me where the illustrations originated from? I'd very much like to include them in my omnibus edition, too.

Thanks!

radius - thanks! I've thought about doing more of ERB; the problem is that I'd like to do the first 2 or three of each series, and the number of figures/plates is very inconsistent, as for example, the first Tarzan has only a single b/w frontispiece. I'll look more closely at the possibilities.

HarryT - with the exception of the covers, I took the plate images (except for the frontispiece of 'Pellucidar' that I downloaded from ERBzine and edited with Photoshop) with a digital camera using books from my very old collection (from my early teens) of ERB. The books I have are in various degrees of quality because I bought them for reading without worrying about whether all the plates were present. The two books I used were pretty complete with the exception listed above, but others in my collection often are missing the frontispiece and other plates. For the covers, the originals came from ERBzine but I tweaked them with Photoshop to improve their appearance.

If you'd like I can email-attach a zip file of the .png figures. They might need to be sent in several installments because of limitations on file size of my email provider.
