About this deal

Their "wheels" are large, round, hard seed-pods from trees; an axle-like claw at the end of each leg grips a seed-pod. Anniversary Edition first printings (not the slipcased editions), all signed by Philip Pullman to loose laid bookplates, two of them Raven. Nice and clean pages but with two small marks and slightly yellow on the outer edges, small mark and a couple of creases on the edges of the pages.

The first fully illustrated edition of Pullman's acclaimed trilogy comprising 'Northern Lights', 'The Subtle Knife' and 'The Amber Spyglass'. The series was initially adapted to the big screen under the name 'The Golden Compass' to mixed reviews. His Dark Materials Trilogy follows the coming of age of the two main characters, Lyra Belacqua and Will Parry, as they wander through a multiverse of parallel universes and move between many alternate worlds. The bloodthirsty biographies of the world’s most infamous pirates are reproduced in this Folio edition of Captain Charles Johnson’s renowned work, including original woodcut illustrations and a fascinating introduction by Margarette Lincoln. As always, a classic, beautiful and stylish edition of three important modern novels presented by Everyman.In Northern Lights, the story takes place in a world with some similarities to our own: dress-style resembles that of the UK's Edwardian era; the technology does not include cars or fixed-wing aircraft, but zeppelins feature as a mode of transport. A wonderful production; the first 65 copies (of 315) are accompanied by a set of signed engravings; copies 16-65 are printed letterpress on mould-made Somerset paper and bound in leather (copies from the higher limitation were bound in cloth). Birds mysteriously rescue her and Pan, and she makes the acquaintance of an alchemist, formerly the witch's lover. Winner of many prestigious awards, including the Carnegie of Carnegies and the Whitbread Award, Pullman’s epic fantasy trilogy His Dark Materials has been acclaimed as a modern classic. Others support this interpretation, arguing that the series, while clearly anticlerical, is also anti-theological because the death of God is represented as a fundamentally unimportant question.

Despite the confusion with the other common meaning of compass ( the navigational instrument), The Golden Compass became the title of the American edition of Northern Lights (the book features an "alethiometer", a rare truth-telling device that one might describe as a "golden compass"). He is best known for the His Dark Materials trilogy (The Golden Compass, The Subtle Knife, The Amber Spyglass), which has been named one of the top 100 novels of all time by Newsweek and one of the all-time greatest novels by Entertainment Weekly.We work closely with publishers and authors to ensure that we offer the best books on the market for your child.
