DescriptionWally Wood - Original Cover Art for Colonial Survey (Gnome Press, 1957). The legendary Wally Wood offers a cover for the Gnome Press edition of Colonial Survey (also known as The Planet Explorer) by Murray Leinster (the pen name of William Fitzgerald Jenkins). A well-received novel in its day, a portion of this book, "Combat Team", (alternately "Exploration Team") won a Hugo Award in 1956 for Best Novellete. The piece, which measures approximately 13.5" x 19" overall, is rendered in red and white tones on board, with the blacks painted on an acetate overlay. In excellent condition, there is some editorial marking in the margins, and some masking tape at the top, along with four sets of registration marks, but none of this affects the image in any way. A masterful piece from a very collectible book (Colonial Survey tends to be one of the harder Gnome Press books to find), the piece is signed by the artist in the lower right.
