Description

Tarzan and the Lion Man is the seventeenth in the series relating the tales of Tarzan, Lord Greystoke. It was first published as a serial in Liberty magazine from November 1933 through January 1934. Tarzan and his lion companion Jad-bal-ja discover a mad scientist in a city of talking gorillas.
