Tolkien Art for Auction

December 9, 2009 at 6:43 pm by xoanon  - 

Sotheby's AuctionSotheby’s is delighted to announce that their English Literature, History, Children’s Books & Illustrations auction on 17 December (sale code L09777) will include an exceptionally early drawing by J.R.R. Tolkien. It is exceptionally rare for original artwork by Tolkien to be offered at auction. This early example depicts his aunt’s farm (‘Lamb’s Farm, Gedling, Notts’) and shows the location where he composed the earliest known writing that relates to his mythology.

The lot can be viewed here or the e-catalogue for the entire sale is available here (please note that the e-catalogue can take some time to load and the Tolkien drawing is lot 178).
