Well, there's a *non-early* cover (non thumbnail too!), specifically Stanley Meltzoff's cover for the 1957 Perma edition (Perma M3074) showg a stripping Brigid O'Shaugnessy here: http://ejmd.tripod.com/respub/dell/novels.htm

Unfortunately, I don't have a copy of Leo Manso's 1944 cover (Pocket Book 268) online, which I imagine is exactly what you're looking for (it's the one with the hands reaching toward the bird).

There's a *thumb nail-ish* image (if you have quite a big thumb) of the front of the first edition dustjacket here: http://ejmd.cwc.net/NOVEL.JPG
