GOD OF MARS
We are presenting for sale an original C.C. BECK book cover painting entitled GOD OF MARS.
Wanting to Leave Fawcett and Captain Marvel, C.C. Beck submitted this painting to Edgar Rice Burroughs as the cover for Gods of Mars which was to be one of the first publications under Burroughs own imprint.
Apparently Burroughs was horrified by the massive amount of blood and the partial nudity and rejected the painting. Beck was not pleased and put the painting in storage until it was sold after his death.
The painting has been professionally framed and in excellent condition. It is hand signed by the artist.
Only the painting is being sold. No publication rights are being sold with the painting.
