Peake, Mervyn

The Gormenghast Trilogy. (Titus Groan; Gormenghast & Titus Alone)., London. Eyre & Spottiswoode 1946 - 1959

3 volumes, set. First editions, first impressions. Original maroon/red cloth, gilt. Titus Groan signed by the author on the flyleaf, with ink ownership on verso of the title page, in first state dust-wrapper which is slightly darkened on the spine and slightly soiled on the lower panel, very minor rubbing to extremities. Gormenghast very minor fading to head of upper cover, d/w spine browned and with small chip to head, very short closed tear to foot, minor rubbing to extremities. Titus Alone very slightly faded to d/w spine. Fine in near fine dust-wrappers.

Note
A superb set of Mervyn Peake’s gothic masterpiece in first editions. It is rare to find volume one in such a fine first state dust-wrapper and it is extremely rare to find that volume signed.
