Here is The Book of Job with pictures by Arthur Szyk, this a hardcover published by The Heritage Press in 1946.

Szyk was a renowned graphic artist and book illustrator. His works were exhibited and published not only in Poland, but also in France, the United Kingdom, Israel, and the United States. However, he gained real popularity through his war caricatures, in which, after the outbreak of World War II, he depicted the leaders of the Axis powers – mainly Adolf Hitler, Benito Mussolini and Emperor Hirohito. After the war, he also devoted himself to political issues, this time supporting the creation of Israel.

Szyk's illustrations are characterized by a rich diversity of colors and detailed presentation, deliberately referred to the medieval and renaissance traditions of illumination of manuscripts, often with interspersed contemporary elements--for example, in this volume, the Sabean enemies (Job 1:15) are depicted as Nazis (see second picture).

Very nice condition.
