Disney has reprinted all eleven Barsoom novels in three massive trade paperbacks, but they're incomplete versions that lack the Edgar Rice Burroughs framing sequences.
Good to know... I was tempted to get them... even though I already have the Barnes and Noble Princess of Mars volume.
What's even weirder is that the John Carter novelization, also published by Disney, reprints the full text of A Princess of Mars, but the Edgar Rice Burroughs framing sequence from Princess is attached to Stuart Moore's novelization, not to Princess. It's just strange.

I got the Disney editions because they're a complete, unified set. But definitive they are not.
