The Lost Continent by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Ace 49291 - 1969); Frazetta cover

The Lost Continent by Edgar Rice Burroughs (Ace 49291 – 1969)

For two hundred years, a civilized America had cut off all contact with the war-ruined Eastern Hemisphere until such places as Europe and Great Britain had become mere legends. Then Jefferson Turck dared take his U.S. aero-sub across the 30th Longitude West on the mission of a new Columbus – to rediscover England.

Edgar Rice Burroughs’ novel of the future is one of his rarest and most exciting science-fiction novels – a thrilling adventure in The Lost Continent which has become the abode of wild beasts, savage tribes, and barbarian queens.

Not especially old or scarce but any Burroughs edition (or any other book for that matter) with a Frazetta cover will have a spot in my collection. I probably procured this at a used book store in Rome, GA for $1 or less. It’s been a while so I couldn’t say for sure.
