WARRIOR OF LLARN [L1]
One of the harder Frazetta covers to find at all - much less in good condition.
Ace [1st printing] 1964 paperback (F-307.) Cover and frontispiece by Frank Frazetta, 160 pages. Condition is Fine (-): tight and almost square with flat spine; there is a faint almost-crease next to spine; age tanning is mild and uniform (slightly less than expected for this vintage.) No stamps, marks or writing - very clean. The edges still have some of that "new book" crispness. Since there are no finger-creases or other wear - I believe this to be unread, despite not being perfectly square.
Warrior of Llarn, in its first book appearance. [Since I haven't read this - I'll have to quote from the inside blurb]: When Alan Morgan, man of Earth, awoke on a world a countless distance from home, he had only his intelligence and his masterful swordplay to keep him alive. Llarn was a world of uncharted deserts where cities of incredible age lay broken and empty, destroyed long ago in the great War which had scourged the planet. Those few cities which remained, and those blue and golden skinned people whose ancestors had lived through the War, gave a coldly hostile welcome to the strange newcomer. But before long he had met the lovely Tuarra, princess of Kharthol, and he vowed he would fight his way across the entire planet to win her - against the savage swordsmen and fierce beasts of this world, and even against the immortal radiation-being which had brought him here for its own unfathomable purpose.
