Signed first edition with invitation slip laid in (1995)

Pullman, Philip

Northern Lights

Published: First Edition

Date: 1995

Almost as new clean copy signed by Pullman on title page. Invitation to The Patrick Hardy Lecture, Children's Book Circle, at which Pullman was speaking, from Nov. 1997, laid in which adds to the provenance of the book.Acquired from the collection of a children's librarian, many of which had letters from authors' and messages laid in. Lovely copy, unread condition however there is some toning/yellowing at page edges due, no doubt, to paper stock used combined with how this copy has been stored. Dust jacket is as new and unclipped apart from a small area at the foot of the front cover where the laminate has lifted slightly from the paper. Carnegie medal badge at top corner of dust jacket; Point on foot of spine as called for. A remarkable example of this signed first edition.
