3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Lawrance Bernabo HALL OF FAMEVINE VOICE on February 27, 2003
Format: Mass Market Paperback
"Tarzan the Magnificent," the 21st book in the Tarzan series by Edgar Rice Burroughs, consists of two novellas: "Tarzan and the Magic Men" (1936) and "Tarzan and the Elephant Men" (1937), the latter of which is a minor sequel to "Tarzan and the City of Gold." In the first novella the American travel writer Stanley Wood tells a fantastic story of another one of those lost cities in the heart of Africa, where women warriors are ruled by an evil magician and there is a great diamond called the Gonfal with hypnotic powers. Tarzan dismisses the story until he sees the Gonfal at work. The result is a standard ERB adventure yarn: Tarzan goes to the lost city to rescue another lost Englishman, resists the charms and powers of a savage queen, so on and so forth. Burroughs has been using this formula since "The Return of Tarzan" when the Lord of the Jungle first encountered La, the beautiful high priestess of the flaming god of Opar. The second novella returns us to Cathne, the City of Gold, and Athne, the City of Ivory, where Tarzan takes on Phoros, the dictator of Athne. This means more political intrigue in the effort to put Zygo on the throne of Athne and another gladiator fight in the arena between the Lord of the Jungle and Hyrack. The second story really has nothing to do with the first and really constitutes little more than ERB tying up some loose ends from "Tarzan and the City of Gold" (which was also something of a misnomer of a title since all the action is in the City of Ivory in both stories).

The book I ordered is NOT the book in the picture, which can be misleading when purchasing from Amazon. I got the 1948 edition of Burroughs publication grey boards w/ blue lettering 2nd edition. The Picture is of a 1939 hardcover 1st edition blue boards red lettering. I am very happy with this edition that the dealer that sent to me. The 1939 was the copyright date not the book I received and should NOT be used to describe this book. I feel that it was Amazon who misrepresented this book in the description category. The 1948 edition has no circle on the front of the Dust Jacket that says "The 1940 Tarzan novel". The price was very fair that I paid for in the 1948 edition that I received.

The plot is similar to most of the books but different enough to engage adventure readers. Parents will appreciate the old fashioned courtesy the good guys show. The people may be scantily dressed, but the clothes stay on. The violence depicted is not gratuitous. I'd recommend these books for kids over twelve, and for lovers of adventure and fantasy.

I bought this item as a gift to complete someone's set of Tarzan books. This Tarzan is not the Johnny Weissmuller/Movie Tarzen, but a very intelligent man. It's too bad that this whole series of books is not being published still.
