This is the book that really started the Frazetta phenomenon and launched the fantasy art book genre in 1975.
This is the scarce clothbound hardcover edition made primarily for the library market. In addition, this is a File Copy from the Betty Ballantine Estate with a Certificate of Authenticity. It is a very sharp, unread copy with a bit of mustiness and a bit of wear to the dustjacket.
Even after more than 40 years, the early books in this Betty Ballantine edited, Frazetta series remain the best collections of Frazetta art, with his best and most iconic paperback cover paintings represented as you remember them.
33 full-page color plates reproducing 30 paintings, nine full-page and three smaller black & white illustrations, and a beautifully done two-page comic story ("Cindy is Saved") reproduced in black & white from the original art.
