The Golden Compass - SIGNED
The Golden Compass
New York: Knopf, 1996.
A masterpiece of imagination, beautifully conceived and sufficiently strange to transport us to an alternative Victorian England, where humans are accompanied by 'daemons' or animal manifestations of their true selves.
Pullman has recently published 'The Book of Dust', which is a prequel to this novel, charting Lyra Belaqua's babyhood, but this first volume of the original His Dark Materials trilogy is by far the most successful of the books so far.
A perfect copy of the second printing, SIGNED on the title page.
