BruffyBoy, any nice copies of The Silmarillion? --I don't recall if you bought any real gems, or not.

Sorry, not following --"3 Volume SD LOTR"?

As for prices: under £200 doesn't sound very common. Let's see what current prices I've noted...

CoH
£325 (#48) April
£217 (#140) April
£258 (#490) January

S&G
£225 (#147) December
£170 (#?) August

Hmmm... clearly I haven't been note taking too regularly there then! There's been a lot up at Buy-It-Now, but I tend not to watch those if they're too pricey --as I just don't think they sell. O/w I normally note any open auctions and auctions with Best-Offer options. But this is all I've noted over the last year.

I agree with you Stu: I can't imagine they sold very many S&G after the initial crew who wanted a copy had got theirs. But CoH is probably pretty close to sold out I'd guess. I can't imagine HarperCollins have too many left.

There is apparently a Tolkien-oriented Victorian Guesthouse there, but, having spent a good few nights in an entirely different "Victorian Guesthouse" over in Randfontein (near Joburg), I would be wary - Everything (and I mean everything) had tassles, frills, velvet and gilt edges. It was truly horrible. All this, placed right next to a fairly large tailings dump that you just KNOW chucks arsenic, uranium, cyanide and all other manner of toxic crap into the air when it is windy....

Ahhh, memories.

Greetings all.

I am going to be in South Africa for a couple of weeks later in the year and plan to go visit Bloemfontein. I know Tolkien was only there until he was three and it does not hold as much significance as various UK Tolkien places do. I just wonder if anyone can point me in the right direction of any relevant sites for a Tolkien ‘pilgrimage’.

It is indeed one and the same.
How do I access the private message?
You can also email me at lbdkbd@gmail.com, if that helps.

Thanks for the quick response!
