The Golden Barge was written by Michael Moorcock in the 50s and first published in 1978. This edition was published in 1984 by New English Library, and contained introductions by Michael Moorcock and M. John Harrison.
It doesn’t, unfortunately, say who drew the cover illustration or any of the interior illustrations anywhere, so I don’t know who they are by. The interior illustrations look a little bit like the illustrations in Island of the Lizard King, though, which were drawn by Alan Langford, so maybe he also drew these. I do not know.
An update (2/7/2014): David Mosley, from the Moorcock’s Miscellany site, has been in touch (see the email below) and kindly provided me with the correct information regarding the illustrations in this book. The interior illustrations are by James Cawthorn, and the cover was drawn by Mick van Houten.
Further to your blog post about The Golden Barge, I thought you might like to know that the interior illustrations were drawn by James Cawthorn, a frequent – and long-term – collaborator of Moorcock’s, who sadly passed away in 2008.
The cover of the 1984 NEL edition you featured is by Mick van Houten.
There’s not really much order or coherence to this post. It’s mostly just some adverts from some random old comics I’ve got lying around, plus the rest of the non-comics stuff from each one.
I really love old adverts, when they’ve been safely divested of their powers by the passage of time.
