Did not spot this at the time, but when the map was at Blackwells, a TV spot was done on it.

Ah, a trace. Thanks so much! That was exactly the information I was looking for.

The drawing in question has been published only in the first edition of Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien. In his foreword to the second edition, Christopher Tolkien notes the 'unfortunate error' in the first of 'an unpublished sketch' being substituted for the finished ink frontispiece of the first printing of The Hobbit; and Wayne thus described it in the Descriptive Bibliography as a preliminary pencil sketch. When we came to write J.R.R. Tolkien: Artist and Illustrator and were able to see the original art at the Bodleian, we found that the so-called 'sketch' was in fact a tracing Tolkien had made of the ink frontispiece to transfer its outlines to a fresh sheet, on which he made the watercolour version: see Artist and Illustrator, p. 107 and note 21, and The Art of The Hobbit, p. 31, where we describe the process. Since the tracing was neither a preliminary sketch nor finished art, but only a 'mechanical' in which there was no development, there was no point in reproducing it.

I've just taken a quick look at The Art of The Hobbit, and Artist & Illustrator, and the 50th ann. ed. of TH - this drawing doesn't appear in any of them.
