Notes

First editions, first impressions, each work signed by the author on the title page; Northern Lights and The Amber Spyglass additionally inscribed, "my greetings to Stephen" and "To Amanda", respectively. Northern Lights with the required issue points to the jacket; 12.99 price, "Point" to the spine panel, and 7-9 Pratt Street to the rear flap. It also bears the Carnegie Medal sticker which some take to denote any of the first three states. Pullman's epic trilogy of fantasy novels is recognised as one of the best children's novels of the 20th century. The Amber Spyglass won the 2001 Whitbread Book of the Year award, being the first children's book to do so, while the trilogy as a whole came third in the BBC's Big Read survey of 2003.
