London, Gollancz, 1971-1973. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A near fine set of the first three Earthsea books, a loose trilogy (until 1990's Tehanu). Preceeded by the US Parnassus Press and Atheneum editions, these are the first British editions. A highlight of modern fantasy. The books are nice copies, volume one has a slight lean, some bumping to the spine tips, a little wear to the jacket and some creasing to the front free endpaper. Volume two has a slight lean but is otherwise in excellent shape. Volume three has a slight lean, is price-clipped and has some foxing to the top edge. A nice set.
