Description

Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is a novel by American writer Edgar Rice Burroughs the fifth in his series of twenty-four books about the title character Tarzan.

Tarzan gets into a bit of a financial scrape thanks to a bad investment and turns to the gold-laden city of Opar to replenish his coffers.

Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar’ has good points and some bad ones. On the one hand, the plot is a tangle with too many characters and so many side plots that it feels like a ridiculous mockery. But, on the other hand, Tarzan’s interaction with animals is marvelous fun. 

Tarzan and the Jewel of Opar is an excellent addition to your vintage  Edgar Rice Burroughs collection or home library.

What is vintage sustainability?

Buying vintage anything is essential because recycling and reusing items means fewer polluting resources are being used to make brand new books, kitchen items, bookends, and more.

Approximately 640,000 tons of books are deposited in the landfill annually at an average weight of 4 pounds each. This averages out to about 320 million books discarded each year that are not recycled. Wow!

As avid readers become more conscious of the environmental consequence of disposable books, we are looking for a more sustainable way to shop.

Could buying vintage be the answer? Absolutely!

Our vintage books are authentic, sustainable, and unique. So make a difference - your way. 

All of my vintage books are sourced from personal collections found in estate sales.

When you shop with Reading Vintage, you are saving a book from the landfill.

Sustainability is the future.

I'm passionate about preserving our past and passionate about the power of books to tell stories.

Because my goal at Reading Vintage is to connect readers to books, I hope to save these books from the landfill. 

I'm proud to offer these books that are gently used. For anyone interested in the environment, browse our online shelves so you can find the titles you love in a way that's more environmentally friendly.
