First editions, first impressions, each copy signed on the title page, of these four titles in Cooper’s “The Dark is Rising” series, lacking only the first title, “Over Sea Under Stone”, which was published by Jonathan Cape, a different publisher, much earlier than the following four, in 1965, and is in some senses a separate title. Both the Dark is Rising and The Grey King were Newbery Award winning titles. Cooper’s sequence of stories, which wove elements of Celtic, Arthurian and Norse mythology and magic into the lives of ordinary children, won awards on both sides of the Atlantic, and is a noted source for the Harry Potter books.

4 works, octavo. Original varicoloured boards, titles to spines in black. With the illustrated dust jackets. Full page illustrations in the text. Generally excellent condition, with only light rubbing to extremities and jackets.
