Being at work now, I cannot check my own copies, but I would expect it to appear in either The Art of the Hobbit by J.R.R. Tolkien or The Art of the Lord of the Rings by J.R.R. Tolkien (both ed. by Hammond & Scull)

Not sure but if anyone is interested the original coloured version is on display in Oxford at moment alongside a Pauline Baynes drawing.
Great to see it in the flesh

Can anyone tell me if they know if this sketch was published anywhere aside from the 1979 edition of 'Pictures by J.R.R. Tolkien'? Thanks!

I apologize in advance if I'm missing something obvious and also for asking this question here, being that it is not really related to collecting (if anyone can recommend another site for questions like this, I would be grateful). But I am wondering what story is referred to in Carpenter's 'A Biography' here:

"Once or twice he decided to move away from the mythical, legendary, and fantastic, and wrote a conventional short story for adults, in a modern setting. The results were unremarkable, showing that his imagination needed myth and legend in order to realise it's full potential." (Part IV: Section 6, p169)

SD Sil came today. Condition is pretty good. The spine no toning, seems like it was stored in a cellar, not in a shelf compared to the smell. But anyway, looks very good on my shelf.


Good stuff. Sometimes books do look a lot better in real life than in photos (I guess it is all down to the contrast, etc). If the spine looks good, you are half way there, anyway :)
