1941 Forest Ackerman's Extra-terrestrials.

The seller (jimvanhise books) states: When the movie E.T. THE EXTRA-TERRESTRIAL was released in 1982, some fans objected that the title was warping the single word extraterrestrial into two words for abbreviation's sake. But here in this 1941 art folio published by Forry Ackerman, he not only called the folio "E.T." but credits L. Sprague de Camp with inventing the abbreviation for the word "extra-terrestrial." // Folio is 5 pages printed on one side of each sheet. Art is in color as shown below with a top sheet of text written by Forry Ackerman giving background on the art (it was drawn by his grandfather when Forry was a child in the 1920s) and the print run was 200. In fine condition.
