Princess Hobbit Artwork

I bought fairly recently on ebay a piece of the original artwork from which two of the illustrations in the serialisation of the Hobbit in Princess magazine were printed.

One shows Gollum chasing Bilbo (you can see the picture on Deagol's site under his article) and the other shows Bilbo with 4 dwarves.

I was contacted out of the blue by an ebay member, mrpottersbooks, from USA asking if i would sell it on to him as he was trying to buy them for a donation to Marquette University.

I have declined (perhaps selfishly) at least for the moment as I am only just basking in the (limited) glory of having this unique item in my hands.

I have referred him to this forum however as a potential source of other owners as I remember some other examples being sold a few years back on ebay.

I also own several of these original art from the series... but to be honest should check which ones I have.

I was able to make a deal with the same seller you bought from to buy his remaining Princess Hobbit art. He had 8 illustrations total and I felt like I got a great deal. I have not got them yet, but when I do I will post some photos. Maybe Marquette University will want them (they should if I am giving them out) lol. We will see. If I think they will take care of them, then that is were they should go. Of course, whichever one is my favorite might end up on my wall for a year or so before I start giving away stuff I just bought.
