The first tale of Barsoom was in the February 1912 issue of All-Story magazine, entitled “Under the Moons of Mars.” It was published under the pseudonym “Norman Bean” (but Burroughs had intended it to read “Normal Bean”). The only illustration found in the six issues of the serial was a small title decoration by artist F. W. Small portraying a lone green six-limbed warrior.
There exists many fine pieces of art inspired by the Mars created in the fertile imagination of Edgar Rice Burroughs. This portfolio includes 25 images, some quite rare, others not so rare. The plates range from 1913 to the last plate finished in 2011.
The stock is 100# Text Topkote. This stock has a 90 brightness and a 98 opacity. 100# Gloss paper strikes a balance between thickness and foldability, while the glossy finish on both sides gives the art a professional appearance.
Each art plate is 11in x 17in.
