He wrote many series, so the first books in series that I can recall deploying this trope are...
  • Tarzan of the Apes
  • A Princess of Mars
  • At the Earth's Core

(In the later books, the children of Tarzan and John Carter fall into the same patterns)

Stand-alones include The Monster Men and The Oakdale Affair.

Best of all, they're all PD, and available here in the MR library.
These aren't really my thing, but thank you for suggesting them. I do very much admire the imagination in these novels.
