    Frank Frazetta "The Fierce Beasts Were Upon the Thurian Simultaneously" Illustration Original Art (1964). This incredible example of Frazetta's pen and ink mastery was most prominently published as plate 21 in the 1973 Edgar Rice Burroughs portfolio, though it was drawn in 1964 when Frazetta was creating the illustrations for the Canaveral edition of Burroughs' At the Earth's Core. As one of the top examples from this key era, the art has also been reproduced extensively, beginning as the back cover of ERB-DOM #17, May 1966, and later in Testament: The Life and Art of Frank Frazetta by Cathy and Arnie Fenner, Underwood Books, 2001 (on page 97). The illustration is in ink and white paint/ink over graphite on Bristol board, with an approximate image area of 6.75" x 10". There is minor handling wear on the artboard, but the image remains in Excellent condition. Nicely signed in the lower left corner.
