1 STATTEN, VARGO (FEARN, JOHN RUSSELL) Creature from the Black Lagoon by Vargo Statten
N.p. (London) Dragon Publications n.d. (1954) 
First Edition. A movie tie-in novel written by John Russell Fearn under the pseudonym Vargo Statten issued to coincide with the release of the iconic sci-fi film Creature from the Black Lagoon. The film was directed by Jack Arnold, starring Richard Carlson, Julie Adams, Richard Denning, Antonio Moreno, Whit Bissell, Ben Chapman, and Ricou Browning. Trace of tanning to the endpapers, else a near fine copy with a narrow strip of fading to the top edge of the cloth at the spine in a very good bright dust jacket with a couple of very small tears and chips and with some darkening to the spine and rear panel. The front panel of the dust jacket is illustrated with the image of the lizard-like creature, the ‘Gill Man', carrying the scantily clad Kay (played by Adams), with whom he has fallen in love, to his home in an underground grotto, deep in the Amazon jungle.
