Swann Galleries, New York, will be offering for sale in their 23 January 2014 auction of 20th Century Illustration Lot 77, an unsigned drawing by Frank Frazetta of a hobbit and a warg, apparently a preliminary drawing for a plate in Frazetta's 1975 Lord of the Rings portfolio (house estimate $8,000-12,000); and Lot 148, a drawing by caricaturist David Levine, of Tolkien in the jaws of a dragon, presumably Smaug, made for Esquire magazine in 1966 (estimate $500-750).
