by Edgar Rice Burroughs
introduction by Vernell Coriell
Deep in the African interior lies the remote refuge called Opar. Ruled by the beautiful High Priestess La, who commands an army of savage beast-men, this hidden colony is the last survival of long-sunken Atlantis.
Tarzan of the Apes had dared penetrate Opar in the past. Now he must brave her bestial defender once more on a desperate mission. For the Lord of the Jungle needs the fabulous jewels of Atlantis for his own purposes. But how can he wrest this treasure from Queen La, whose burning desire is to enslave the ape-man as her coveted mate?
Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is the fifth in Edgar Rice Burroughs’ world-famous adventure series. This Altus Press edition marks the first time the original Argosy version of this thrilling tale has been reprinted since 1916.
Edgar Rice Burroughs was the imaginative and prolific creator of Tarzan, John Carter of Mars and Carson of Venus, and is considered one of the most important literary discoveries ever to appear in the pages of Argosy and other Munsey magazines.
