அறிவுச் செல்வம் Arivuselvan (?) by கோ. பூவராகன் Ko. Poovaragan. Google translates this title as “Wealth of Knowledge”.

What an intense cover illustration! This definitely screams its era, mid-1960s! Here’s a bit of info about the origin and culture of the paisley pattern, btw. Also note that the author’s name is written on a representation of the palm-leaf manuscripts of Southern India.
