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.
Thanks

Sorry camera broken otherwise i would have posted a picture!

Congratulations, laurel! It's an illustration for the chapter 'Henry Morgan, Buccaneer' in From the Fury of the Northmen by Rhoda Power, published by Houghton Mifflin, Boston, in 1957. The picture appears on p. 178.
