Danton's
Tarzana Treasure Vaults

OUT OF TIME'S ABYSS
by
Edgar Rice Burroughs
from
Urbanite ~ Vol. 1, No. 10 ~ April 4, 1924
Until now this article has been long sought after by ERB fans.
I have recently retrieved it from my father's archive and it is presented here as a fine example of 
my grandfather's sense of humor and of his very colorful past. We've displayed it in text format 
accompanied by full-sized scans of the actual pages.
 http://www.johncolemanburroughs.com/mag/1144.html
It is with great pride that I share a rare special booklet from 1863, 
written by my father's namesake -- John M. Coleman --
during the darkest moments of those darkest of times in our nation's history.
