This is a print.

These are 10 publisher proof prints of paperback covers. All are paintings commissioned by Panther Books in the 1950s. These rare proofs are all from Matania's personal archive.

The 10 novels are: Spartacus by Howard Fast, The Man in the Iron Mask by Alexandre Dumas, More Stories from the Arabian Nights by Sir Richard Burton, The Russian Revolution by Alan Moorhead, The Song of Ruth by Frank G Slaughter, A Test to Destruction by Henry Williamson, The Thorn of Arimathea by Frank G Slaughter, Tiberius by Ernst Mason, The Golden Virgin by Henry Williamson and Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte.

These rare proofs are all from Matania's personal archive. Sadly the original art for these has not survived.

Reproduced on pages 228 and 229 of Drawing From History: The Forgotten Art of Fortunino Matania.
