Star Wars Portfolio Ralph McQuarrie (1983)
I've photographed my Star Wars Portfolio by Ralph McQuarrie, so you can check it out. It's a portfolio of the Star Wars Return of the Jedi movie, and holds 20 drawings.
It was published by Ballantine, at the time it cost $9.95 in the US, $12.95 in Canada.
The text on the back says the following:
