Blackwell's have an original drawing by Pauline Baynes from C.S. Lewis Prince Caspian for sale.

Original signed drawing for Prince Caspian.
[p. 186, 'But when she saw the earths that were actually brought to them she felt quite different.']

Description: black ink, pencil annotations below image, small mark between quotation lines, crease above image, image size: 11 x 5 cm approx.; framed and glazed: 40 x 39 cm,
Publication Details: [n.d., circa 1951]

Notes: Baynes's drawing, with her pencilled signature beneath, shows Clodsley Shovel and his moles bearing tiered puddings of earth and loam for the midsummer feast. The image is the same size as published in the first edition. The other pencil markings refer to sizing and place in text, with a contextual quotation in Baynes's distinctive hand captioning her illustration.

I think she is a great artist but am very biased and prefer her Tolkien illustrations.

I really like the picture, but seems a bit expensive.
