    Description

    Unknown Artist - Original Cover Art for Big Little Book #1467, "Tarzan: In the Land of the Giant Apes" (Whitman, circa 1940). During the early 30s to early 40s, comics were in there infancy. Children of era were enamored with Big Little Books however. Literally millions of them were sold. Although hundreds of titles were produced, the original art for these treasures is extremely scarce. This one is exceptional too. The condition is perfect. The colors are as brilliant as the day it was painted. It has a good size too, measuring 15.5" x 15.5".
