    James Cawthorn - Edgar Rice Burroughs Illustrations and Others Lot Original Art Group of 17 (1965-1991). James Cawthorn, like his spiritual mentor, Burne Hogarth, is that rare thing: a unique and original mind working in a medium of heroic fantasy. Cawthorn was an illustrator and author who had a career spanning more than fifty years, including the definitive Elric, The Jewel in the Skull (1978) and The Crystal and the Amulet (1986), the former being the U.K.'s first home-grown graphic novel. Cawthorn had an admiration for Edgar Rice Burroughs as presented here in these black-and-white illustrations, panel pages, and preliminaries of Tarzan, Dejah Thoris, and John Carter, Warlord of Mars, and others. Created in ink over graphite on art paper with images varying in size from 4" x 4" to 11" x 15". There is mild toning, creasing, edge wear, trimmed borders, whiteout and image stat paste-up corrections, and small chips along the edges. Average Very Good condition.
