Mervyn Peake's Gormenghast Trilogy - set of three
Titus Groan, Gormenghast and Titus Alone
New York and London: The Overlook Press and Methuen, 1982.
First printings of a later edition, first thus in the US.
One of the great Romances to have come out the '40s and '50s, this trilogy was the masterpiece of Mervyn Peake.
A highly accomplished illustrator, Peake had written nonsense verse, but turned his talents to this epic saga, in response to the horrors of World War Two.
