The Prydain Cycle: The Book of Three; The Black Cauldron (Signed); The Castle of Llyr; Taran Wanderer; and The High King
by Alexander, Lloyd
NY: Holt, Rinehart, Winston, 1968. First edition, first printing. Hardcover. Fine/Near fine. First editions, first printings. Five volumes. The complete set of the Prydain Cycle. The books are all in fine condition. All dustwrappers are price-clipped, and all but "Taran Wandere" are lightly toned at the spine. "The High King" is also rubbed along the spine. "The Black Cauldron" is inscribed by the author to "Jerry, with all best wishes". "The High King" dustwrapper is first state without the Newbery medal. This is Alexander's high fantasy masterpiece, based on Welsh mythology, and with roots in the Mabinogion, though inflated and changed around by the author. Overall this is the nicest set of stated first editions we have seen.
