    Bernie Wrightson signed original Frankenstein plate published in The Lost Frankenstein Pages. (1980) Accomplished in pencil and ink on 15 x 20 in. artist's board. Dated and signed at bottom right, "1980, Berni Wrightson". Titled, "Sometimes on the very brink of certainty, I failed..." A magnificent ink drawing of both "Dr. Frankenstein" and his creation in the laboratory, the anguished Doctor pondering with dread. Certainly among the finest of the illustrations Wrightson created for his Magnum Opus of an already stellar career. It's rare to find so definitive a plate, containing all the elements of the story: the doctor, the monster, and the lab. This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to acquire such an incredible example! Without a doubt, the finest Wrightson published Frankenstein plate to be offered at auction. In fine condition.
