First edition, first impression, of the first book in the Dark is Rising series. Cooper’s sequence of stories, which weaves 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. An uncommon title especially so in this condition.

Octavo. Original grey cloth boards, gilt titles to spine, with the dust jacket. Illustrations throughout by Margery Gill. Dust jacket with a nick to front top corner, mild spotting to rear panel. A superb copy.
