J. ALLEN ST. JOHN ART GALLERY
As the great thoat and his rider hurtled past, Carthoris swung his long-sword in a mighty cut.Another figure sprang from a cluster of dense foliage.
For but an instant the searchlight halted upon Thuvia of Ptarth.With a savage cry of triumph, Thar Ban disappeared down the black canyon of the Avenue of Quays.
Between them and the city raged a terrific battle.The man turned dreamy eyes sleepily upon them.
A steel blade pierced the very center of his heart.I prefer to die standing, she replied.
The jeddak of Lothar sank senseless to the marble floor.Stay, my chieftain, Stay -- I love you!


FRANK FRAZETTA GALLERY OF DOUBLEDAY ART
Doubleday Edition: Frank Frazetta wrap-around dust jacket
With a savage cry of triumph, Thar Ban vaulted to the back of his throat, Thuvia of Ptarth still in his arms.Carthoris stepped between Thuvia and the banth, his sword ready to contest the beast's victory over them.Thewed like some giant god was Carthoris of Helium, yet in the clutches of these creatures he was helpless as a frail woman.
