In 1912, Edgar Rice Burroughs created Tarzan, an orphaned English lord given a simian upbringing in the African jungle. The 'ape-man' has been an iconic character ever since.

Tarzan: The Biography traces his history in prose, film, comic strips, comic books, radio, stage, television, video games and merchandise. It contains exclusive interviews with Burroughs family and associates, and with actors, directors, writers and artists who have brought the character to the public.

Originally published as Ape-Man, this improved publication has been fully updated and augmented by over 100 images.
