Thanks Trotter... that is indeed a great site! I guess I'm more specifically wondering if there are any sites similar in style (lesser in scope of course) to TolkienBooks.net. For example... I've never been able to find any site with any decent amount of information about Canadian editions. I guess I just wish there was a 'TolkienBooks.net' for every country!


There aren't that many serious long-term Tolkien collectors, so you may need to jump in at the deep-end and make your own site!

The only time I have actually heard anyone say it was on Chris Morris' controversial spoof news show, "Brass Eye" back in the late 90s, where Chris was interviewing notorious London gangster "Mad Frankie Fraser" (who didn't know it was a spoof). He asked him a series of questions and asked him to rate each question as to how mad it would make him, on a scale which had "Mad as a Lorry" at the upper end.

I suspect that Trotter is as Mad as a lorry.

Khamul isn't much better with his Silmarillions, mind...

All four of the GA&U first edition Hobbits were 7s6d.

The Foyles edition was 2s6d.

The first hardback price rise was the 5th edition (1951) which was one shilling more, 8s6d.


Marvellous. I knew you would have the answer (on account of having all the books!!!)

Hi All, Does anyone happen to know what price was printed on the 1942 Hobbit DJ. I know it was 7s. 6d. NET on the 1946, but I'm imagining it was potentially a lesser amount on the '42?
