Gormenghast - trilogy *pre-loved*
Gormenghast is the vast crumbling castle to which the seventy-seventh Earl, Titus Groan, is Lord and heir. Gothic labyrinth of roofs and turrets, cloisters and corridors, stairwells and dungeons, it is also the cobwebbed kingdom of Byzantine government and age-old rituals, a world primed to implode beneath the weight of centuries of intrigue, treachery, manipulation and murder - this trilogy ranks as one of the twentieth century's most remarkable feats of imaginative writing.
This includes three pre-loved paperbacks forming the Gormenghast trilogy: Titus Groan, Gormenghast and Titus Along, by Mervyn Peake (with cover art by the author). The books were first published in the '40s/'50s and these are printings from '68, '70 and '71 respectively. The books are in good to very good condition. Titus Groan has wear to the cover and spine and a previous owner's name in pen on the first page but is otherwise clean. Gormenghast and Titus Alone have only minor wear to the cover and are clean inside.
