Size Of Poster [20 Inches x 28 3/4 Inches]. 44 year old poster created for Tolkien by Pauline Baynes.[20 Inches x 28 3/4 Inches] It has been stored in a large diameter tube so not too much "memory". All corners have pin holes and moderate wear. Top edge has 3 small white "lesions" and some small wrinkles.
Right edge is very good. Has some damage nearer the bottom below the artist's name. The bottom edge is VG. The left edge has minor damage in the dark areas near the bottom and the top. There are horizontal creases that are more visible on the back.
See the very last photos. The paper quality is very good and somewhat like a heavy satin fibrous material that tends to hide the creases. This poster would be magnificent with just a modest frame or possibly a float frame.
Please carefully review all photos and the complete description for more information. Features ten small inset illustrations of important locations from the story. The poster is framed at the top by a row of nine figures representing the members of the "Fellowship of the Ring" setting out on their quest. At the bottom is an array of antagonists from the novel, including the nine Black Riders, Gollum, Shelob, and various Orcs. Background: Based on the map of Middle-earth first published in 1954, this new map was a collaboration between Pauline Baynes and J.
Tolkien corrected a few errors on the original map, and supplied some additional place names. Ms Baynes was introduced to Tolkien when she first submitted illustrations for his Middle-earth epic in 1949. 50 copies were printed on cartridge paper with the phrase'Privately Printed by George Allen & Unwin' added at the foot. Further copies were printed for the trade.
Tolkien and Pauline Baynes separately signed an unknown number of copies in 1970, possibly more than six. Jointly they signed three copies in 1973 - these had the top and bottom borders removed at Tolkien's request. Tolkien went on to introduce her to fellow author CS Lewis, for whose Narnia books she also went on to produce illustrations. Tolkien's annotations on an original rough map were used by illustrator Pauline Baynes to produce the first lithographed map of the magical world in 1969. Tolkien instructed Ms Baynes on the placement of important towns and cities like Hobbiton, the home of the trilogy's hero Frodo Baggins.In one annotation he writes Hobbiton should be "approximately at the latitude of Oxford", where the author lived. The Printer Westerham Press Ltd closed in 2011. Marking an end to a sixty year history. Westerham Press has been one of the most important offset litho sheet-fed printers in the UK, both from an innovation and quality point of view. At least 12 impressions of the trade edition were issued. After the 7th Impression, but not later than the 12th Impression, a green border 17mm high was inserted between the top and bottom edges of the map and the illustrated borders.
