Tarzan and the Jewels of Opar is a book written by Edgar Rice Burroughs, the fifth in his series of books about the title character Tarzan. It first appeared in the November and December issues of All-Story Cavalier Weekly in 1916, and the first book publication was by McClurg in 1918.
The novel was written while Burroughs lived in Oak Park, Illinois, which provided the name "Opar".
In the prior novel Tarzan and Jane's son, Jack Clayton, a.k.a. Korak, had come into his own. In this novel Tarzan returns to Opar, the source of the gold where a lost colony of fabled Atlantis is located, in order to make good on some financial reverses he has recently suffered. While Atlantis itself sank beneath the waves thousands of years ago, the workers of Opar continued to mine all of the gold, which means there is a rather huge stockpile but which is now lost to the memory of the Oparians and only Tarzan knows its secret location.
This edition has been formatted for your reader, with an active table of contents.  It has also been annotated, with extensive additional information about the book and also Edgar Rice Burroughs, including an overview, plot summary, film adaptations, comic adaptations, other uses, extensive information about the character of Tarzan, biographical and bibliographical information.
