Richard Lupoff called The Moon Maid trilogy Burroughs' "masterpiece of science fiction". The Moon Maid is published for the first time in this very special edition of three separate volumes with 20,000 words not found in the 1926 first edition.

Each book in the set is printed on archival paper, Smyth sewn, bound in a leather cover, double stamped in gold and wrapped in an original dust jacket. The set is housed, with a collector's portfolio, in a decorated leather clamshell case. The three volumes are:

Volume 1: The Moon Maid
Volume 2: The Moon Men
Volume 3: The Red Hawk


This trilogy edition is limited to 600 numbered and 52 lettered sets signed by the contributors and commemorates both the first publication of The Moon Maid in Argosy All-Story Weekly in 1923 and the 100th Anniversary of Edgar Rice Burroughs Inc.

It is the fourth matching set in the “New World” series launched by ERB Books in 2020 with A Princess of Mars - each of which celebrates the first appearance of one of ERB's newly created realms filled with fantastic kingdoms, cultures and creatures.

Each volume in the set is unique with its own book cover design, illustrated endpapers, frontispiece and title pages. The Moon Maid trilogy features a total of 100 illustrations from over 20 different artists past and present and contains 20+ tipped in colour plates, 30+ full page b&w illustrations and 40+ spot b&w illustrations.

A partial list of artists includes Jamie Chase, William Stout, Mark Schultz, Sanjulian, Bob Eggleton, Thomas Yeates, Daren Bader, Doug Klauba, Reed Crandall, Mike Hoffman, Joe Jusko, J. Allen St. John, Jeffrey Catherine Jones, and Roy Krenkel.

The case not only houses the books but a vintage-style Collector's Portfolio with rare curated replica items for The Moon Maid. These include the first pages of the manuscripts for each novella in the trilogy, pages and drawings from ERB's notebook, letters and a telegram between ERB and his editor, 1920's ERB Inc. advertising and numerous 11x17 reproductions of some of the best pieces of art from the book.
