Original Pauline Baynes drawing for Prince Caspian sells for £5,000

Sold for 5,000, this original drawing from Prince Caspian

I’ve lost count of the number of times I have read Prince Caspian by C.S. Lewis, and this image of the Pevensie children and Trumpkin crawling through the woods under a rain of arrows is ingrained into my memory. I am not the only person with fond memories for this Chronicles of Narnia book – somebody just paid £5,000 ($6,662) for the original drawing by illustrator Pauline Baynes via AbeBooks. Look at the notes surrounding the illustration.

Baynes (1922-2008) illustrated more than 100 books, notably for Lewis and his fellow Inkling JRR Tolkien. A number of other original drawings from Prince Caspian are also available for purchase.
