|TAI #226||sketch (III) for The Hill: Hobbiton across the Water|
I’ve not seen the first impression of the first edition of Pictures; Christopher Tolkien’s description of “an unpublished sketch of Hobbiton … in which … there are no words … on the signpost” can, however, refer only to this piece — unless there is a further otherwise-unpublished sketch. I’d love to hear from anyone who has the first impression!
