Lot # 37:
David, The Shepherd King original back cover artwork by Frank Bellamy for The Eagle (1959) Vol. 10, No. 12
The Philistine hordes march on Jerusalem as David hides his army in the outlying forest setting a trap to repel the invaders and, years later, King David's son, Absalom, plots treachery against his father. The ‘Shepherd King’ title and top left-hand panel of Young David and explanatory text are laser colour additions to complete the look of the artwork.
