Rediscovered: ERB — Name/ Place/ Date

Brian Leno jumps aboard with a cameo appearance in today’s Autograph Hound Super-Sunday tribute to Edgar Rice Burroughs.

The regret expressed in ERB’s last months in re: “I am so ashamed of my writing since I have been ill. I used to have a hand I was proud of” moved this lifelong autograph collector to the core.

In memoriam ERB, he pulls a slip of paper from its frame and offers it for view.

I think it exemplifies my favorite style of autograph.

The name, in full.

The place — and Tarzana Ranch is one cool place to grab a signature from.

The date of the John Hancock.
