The Gilak's Guide to Pellucidar

The 7-book Pellucidar series was written by the master storyteller, Edgar Rice Burroughs. Those books told the story of David Innes and Abner Perry's adventures in the savage land at the Earth's core. This book by David Critchfield is the one and only guide to Pellucidar. It's full of information about the Earth's core: articles, maps, book summaries, family trees, languages, beliefs, publishing histories, a glossary of terms, and a list of articles written about Pellucidar. It's a must for fans of the series and a handy reference for Burroughs scholars and artists. The book is illustrated by Harry Roland with all new Pellucidar art.

Buried People of Pellucidar

In the third book, Tanar of Pellucidar, there is an encounter with a curious being.

This species is described as the following [according to the ERB site]:
The Coripies, or “Buried People”, are perhaps the most gruesome race to have evolved within Pellucidar. They are an underground race native to the island of Amicop, apparently descended from surface dwellers. They are humanoid in form, but lack aby discernible facial features. They are totally blind, and skin covers their eyes, which roll grotesquely beneath the covering membrane. They have heavy fangs and webbed talons, with which they tear apart their prey. This usually consists of cave fish , toads and lizards, but they relish the flesh of other warm-bloods as a break from this.
This seems to be the only image of a Buried People. It appears to be a depiction of the one-on-one fight Tanar has with the first one we encounter, where Stellara assists (in spite of what the image would suggest).
