Thanks for the update! Very useful to know more details. I didn't notice on my first reading that the first two volumes are slipcased (made by a bookbinder), so clearly the ROTK volumes were added to this collection at a later time.

I have put together a widget that combines, labels, and sorts by date posts to multiple (currently three) other RSS feeds into a sort of meta-feed for interesting Tolkien related posts.

Do you like it? Not like it?

If you like it, have other feeds I can combine into it?

Please tell me what you think!

With thanks to Mark Hooker, I have discovered the St. Petersburg Tolkien Society, and begun adding them to the Guide database. They publish "Palantir", a fanzine in Russian, but already I have found some treasures in their back issues (all of which are available online in PDF format) such as a good scan of a handwritten Tolkien letter.

I hope someone besides me finds these useful. And if anyone reading has any information on their prior fanzine the "Prancing Pony" I would appreciate any leads. Thanks!
