|TAI #20||Doors of Durin|
This “final art” by Tolkien was subsequently emended by a printer’s artist. For example, faint pencil just inside the lower of the two arch lines (above the seven stars) has been erased, as has a similar pencil line just above the text below the drawing; also, that text has been dropped slightly to allow more room between it and the drawing.
