|Jupiter Books hardback, 1974. Cover painting by Frank R. Paul illustrating|
Life On Uranus for Fantastic Adventures magazine.
This book covers ground from roughly 1884 and like Brian Aldiss' book Science Fiction Art - The Fantasies Of SF (1975) there is heavy bias towards pulp artwork, in particular those from the 1930's; the most contemporary piece of artwork I found was from an issue of Fantastic Adventures dated 1940. Paul's cover illustration was accompanied by the following text:
"The inhabitant of Uranus lives on a rigorous planet indeed. He is confronted with tremendous gravity, dense atmosphere, poison gases, and great storms."
