Tolkien would have been 10-11 years old at this time, right? I haven't clicked on the link yet: what's being claimed here?

Thanks guys!

It was actually the weekend just there that I was in London. I ended up, due to various factors, spending the entire day in the British Library. I already knew about the Terror & Wonder exhibition; it was the main reason I was going there. But...

I also took in a tour of the library itself. Amazing. Two factors came together for me while I was there: because it was Sunday morning, only three people (myself & an elderly American couple) bought tickets for the tour; and because it was Sunday, all of the public library proper (the reading rooms & staff rooms, etc) were totally empty. The tour is scheduled to take just over an hour, but because it was just the four of us & I had a stupid amount of questions --the tour guy took well over two hours taking us about & chatting. We basically got a special tour. What a place! It was, I have to admit, a bibliophiles dream...

For a second I thought I'd be helpful, but I see the focus is on US editions. Plus, "First Edition, hardcover" is, from a bibliographical perspective, woefully imprecise & inadequate as a description of what edition is under discussion!

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!
