An original John Lennon drawing entitled “Treasure Ivan” in 1964. Pen and black ink on a sheet of plain paper, unsigned but titled and inscribed in an unknown hand “L to R” and “43” in blue ink. This drawing of “Large John Saliver” with the 'Parable on his shoulder is an affectionate parody of Robert Louis Stevenson's “Treasure Island”, one of John's favorite childhood books. It appears on p.43 of John's first collection of verse, stories and drawings, “In His Own Write”, published by Jonathan Cape in the UK in March 1964. From The Tom Maschler Collection. As Literary Editor at Jonathan Cape, Maschler was heavily involved in the production of both of John's books in 1964 and 1965. As a gesture of thanks, John presented him with the original drawings and manuscripts. All rights of reproduction reserved to the Estate of the late John Lennon. Original Lennon drawings especially ones that are published are impossible to find. Comes with a Frank Caiazzo Letter of Authenticity and a Gotta Have Rock & Roll Certificate of Authenticity.
