I know not really a directly related Tolkien suject but I was after anyones help.
I recently purchased an original Pauline Baynes drawing (some of you may have seen it at large auction house) of three pirates.
I have just received it and must say the detail is absolutely fantastic. There is a faint 'box' in pencil around the drawing and a quote underneath refering to Henry Morgan the legendary pirate.
To me it looks like it was intended as a book illustration as there are also some references noted at the bottom.
I have tried without success to try and find any images/information on any Baynes pirate illustrations.
Anyone come accross any?
Wayne - was hoping maybe you have come across some in your forthcoming Baynes book research?
Any help /info appreciated.
Sorry camera broken otherwise i would have posted a picture!
