I'm going to London for a couple of days, over a weekend. Anyone familiar with visiting the British Museum or British Library? Can you just turn up or is booking tickets (for exhibitions) advisable/a-must? Any other literary-associated sites worthy of visiting? My visit will probably be on a Sunday & I don't have a massive amount of time in the city centre.

Any advice appreciated!

THE HOBBIT, Grafton, 1991, Pb, 6th imp.
http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=24200
THE LORD OF THE RINGS, HarperCollins, 1993, Pb, 1st imp.
http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=46280
THE SILMARILLION, HarperCollins, 1994, Pb 1st imp.
http://tolkienbooks.net/php/details.php?reference=62280

I still have all of these & use them as reading copies. I read LotRs, for the first time in many years, in early-to-mid 2013 (I think); and The Silmarillion in June this year. I may have read The Hobbit around this time, too; but can't recall exactly. LotRs is nearly falling apart; the other two are okay. I also have an additional duplicate collectable copy (no spine fade) of The Silmarillion; also a 1st imp. I'd read The Hobbit previous to my acquisition of the above 1991/92 Grafton copy (I first read it in primary school, several years earlier); but the other two editions are contemporary with my first reading of them.

Do you not think they look at little short to be the leather editions?

Do you think? I don't. We know the slipcase that housed these was a prototype only; therefore, it would be pretty unlikely to pop up in a 2014 HC photograph along with current editions. Additionally, those spines don't look leather. Further, if we assume the bottom of all of those books are sitting flush with the bottom of the cardboard box (not an unreasonable assumption), then these HoME volumes are far too short to be the 2000-2001 leather Eds. Yes/no?
