    Frank Frazetta - The Beasts of Tarzan Cover Preliminary Original Art (Ace, 1963). Frank Frazetta's graphite and colored pencil preliminary study for The Beasts of Tarzan has been handsomely matted alongside a copy of the final, printed cover. The preliminary was done the "same size" as the printed piece, giving the presentation maximum eye-appeal. Frazetta's dynamic design captures all the excitement of the Jungle Lord's adventures, "Scorning the cloak of humdrum civilization, the famous white savage, the mighty Tarzan of the Apes, returns to the jungles of untamed Africa, determined to prove once again to scheming men and vicious beasts his authority as Lord of the Jungle." The image area of the drawing is approximately 4.5" x 6". The art is in Excellent condition and is signed by Frazetta at the lower left. Kreegah!
