Tarzan of the Apes -- #1 -- Grosset & Dunlap Edition

Deep in the savage African jungle, the baby Tarzan orphaned son of a British nobleman was raised by a fierce she-ape of the tribe of Kerchak. There he had to learn all the secrets of the wild to survive how to talk with animals, swing through the trees, and fight against the great predators. He grew to the strength and courage of his fellow apes. And in time, his human intelligence promised him the kingship of the tribe. He became truly Lord of the Jungle. His adventures continue with his fearless encounters with the jungle terrors, his slowly dawning realization that he is a man and his, at first, pathetic efforts to add to his knowledge. Then men entered his jungle, bringing with them the wanton savagery of civilized greed and lust and bringing also the first white woman Tarzan had ever seen. Now suddenly, Tarzan had to choose between two worlds.

Return of Tarzan, The -- #2 -- Grosset & Dunlap Edition

Tarzan had renounced his right to the woman he loved, and civilization held no pleasure for him. After a brief and harrowing period among men filled with adventures as strange and thrilling as those of his boyhood in the primeval forest, he turned back to the primeval African jungle where, by virtue of his fighting ability and superior cunning, he had grown to manhood -- King of his Tribe and Master of the Jungle! . It was there he first heard of Opar, the city of gold, left over from fabled Atlantis. It was a city of hideous men and of beautiful, savage women, over whom reigned La, high priestess of the Flaming God. Its altars were stained with the blood of many sacrifices. Unheeding of the dangers, Tarzan led a band of savage warriors toward the ancient crypts and the more ancient evil of Opar.

Jungle Tales of Tarzan --  #6 -- Grosset & Dunlap Edition

The young Tarzan was unlike the great apes who were his only companions and playmates. Theirs was a simple, savage life, filled with little but killing or being killed. But Tarzan had all of a normal boy's desire to learn. He had painfully taught himself to read from books left by his dead father. Now he sought to apply this book knowledge to the world around him. He sought for such things as the source of dreams and the whereabouts of God. And he searched for the love and affection that every human being needs. But he was alone in his struggles to grow and understand. The life of the jungle had no room for abstractions.

Silently, he buried the body and swore his terrible vengeance against those who had done this terrible deed.

There, in Trohanadalmakus, Tarzan was an honored guest—until he was captured by the warriors of Veltopismakus in one of the ant-men's wars. They had their plans for the ape-man.

The enigmatic Atan Thome was also obsessed with the Father of Diamonds, and planted agents in the Gregory safari to spy out its route and sabotage its efforts. Both parties reached their goal, remote prisoners of its priests, doomed to die in loathsome rites.
