Ace F-179, 173 pp. Spine a bit creased and slanted with a small chip at top. Edges a little ragged, likely from insect damage. Some scuffing and soiling to covers, light dampstain along leading edge, pages browned but text is clean and unmarked. Overall, a nice copy.
First in the Venus Series about adventures on a cloudy, heavily forested Venus.
"Carson Napier set out for Mars in a secret interplanetary rocket but found himself instead on a different world - the cloud-hidden planet Venus.
"Venus was a startling world - semi-private, semi-civilized. It was a place of unmapped oceans dotted with great islands' a world whose trees pierced the clouds and whose cities squatted on their branches; a planet who inhabitants included men, half-men, and monsters, allstruggling with each other for dominance. Carson Napier's adventures, his search for the beautiful Duare, are a Burroughs novel in the best Tarzan tradition. "; 5¾" - 6¾" Tall
