SCREENPLAY FOR THE MOVIE "GREYSTROKE" Edgar Rice Burroughs, Robert Towne. SCREENPLAY FOR THE MOVIE "GREYSTROKE"
(No-place: no-publisher, August 4, 1977). Early draft of Robert Towne's screenplay for the 1984 movie "Greystroke," which was based on Burroughs' novel, TARZAN OF THE APES. The film was directed by Hugh Hudson with Christopher Lambert starring as "Tarzan" (the name is never used in the film's dialogue) and Andie MacDowell as Jane; the cast also included Sir Ralph Richardson, who received an Academy Award nomination for "Best Supporting Actor." Unfortunately Towne, who was apparently frustrated at being passed over for director, used the pseudonym "P. H. Vazak" (the name of his dog) for the film and so his Oscar nomination for "Best Adapted Screenplay" was under that name. 170 pages, printed on rectos only, clasp bound with black card covers. Plain white label on front with handwritten "GREYSTROKE / Rob't Towne"; title handwritten on "spine" (left-side page edges). Covers a little loose but holding, otherwise very good.

TARZAN OF THE APES. Edgar Rice Burroughs. TARZAN OF THE APES.
New York: A. L. Burt, [1915]. An early reprint edition of the author's first book. Issued from the plates of the McClurg 1914 first edition with its copyright page but with a new title page and frontis based on the original McClurg title page. Near fine with only the barest wear to green cloth boards. The cover is lettered in black and there are no lines on the cover; in dust jacket with some minor edge wear and a few chips at spine ends. A very nice copy. Robert Zeuschner calls for the Burt first printing to be lettered in white and to have embossed lines on cover--this copy doesn't but it does have ads for only Harold Bell Wright titles in the back, and the latest one advertised is a 1914 Wright title. We assume there would have been other Tarzan titles or other later Wright books advertised if this were published much later than 1914. AN EARLY REPRINT ISSUED FROM THE PLATES OF THE FIRST.
