Tarzan 101 | Tarzan's Africa



Celebrating Tarzan's 101st anniversary by walking through Scott Tracy Griffin's Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration.

Like yesterday's post on the Ape-English Dictionary, there's no way for me to properly relay the information in Griffin's section on "Tarzan's Africa." At least, not a way that I'd feel good about. It's just maps, so I could scan them all and post them, but the point of these posts isn't to steal from Griffin's book.

His double-page spread of Mel Greifinger's map above wouldn't fit on my scanner anyway, but he also includes some smaller scans of nine maps from Burroughs' own notes. I'd dig a whole atlas of enlarged scans of those, but they're interesting even at the smaller size and include areas like Pal-ul-don, Pellucidar, the Lost Empire, etc. I don't want to turn this into a direct ad for Tarzan: The Centennial Celebration, but this is a chapter best experienced directly.
