Description:
London: Collins, 1960. A first edition, first printing published by Collins in 1960. A fine book without inscriptions. In a near fine wrapper with just a touch of rubbing to the corners and to the spine tips. Accompanied by three letters from the author (with original envelopes). Garner's script is superb, each of the three letters are works of art on their own. One letter reads, "Dear Victoria, I thought you might like to know that the sequel to 'The Weirdstone of Brisingamen' is being published by Collin s on 29 August. It's called 'The Moon of Gomrath': I hope you'll read it. Yours sincerely, Alan Garner." The other two letters discuss the recipient's kindness in writing to an author and a canoe journey made by Garner. All letters are dated (1961) and include the author's address. The author's first work of fantasy fiction.

Description:
London, Collins, 1960. . First edition, first impression; 8vo; map endpapers; publisher's blue cloth lettered in silver to spine, dust-jacket, with artwork by George Adamson and photographic portrait of the author, rubbed at fore-corners, a few closed tears and some chipping around spine ends, but overall very good. The first edition of the author's first novel, the first in a trilogy that was not completed until 2012. The book was popular and critically well-received upon its publication, though the author himself came to look less favourably on it as time went on; many authors of children's fantasy fiction today consider The Weirdstone of Brisingamen one of the key works in the genre. Rare in the original dust-jacket.
