The Golden Compass (a.k.a. The Northern Lights)

Philip Pullman

A good but by not perfect signed first US printing copy of the first book of His Dark Materials trilogy. The Golden Compass (a.k.a. The Northern Lights, first book of "His Dark Materials" trilogy) by Philip Pullman Hardcover First US Edition - First Printing New York: Knopf, 1996. (true first edition Scholastic Press UK, 1995). SIGNED, inscribed by Pullman "Best wishes to Brian- Philip Pullman" with Pullman's characteristic underline of his name. Because of the condition, priced at about 1/2 better copies which start at about $250+ signed, and I have seen prices for the signed set at $1000+. For the bargain-hunter collector. Priced to sell. Very Good in Very Good Dust Jacket. Sadly whoever Brian was, he didn't do a very good job of taking care of his book, and this is by no means a perfect copy. The book itself has noticeable reading wear, mostly soiling to the text block and some kind of 1/2" water stain to the upper text block near the spine, tender corners and shelf-wear to the bottom edge. There is also nicking and rubbing to the corners of the dust jacket and some edge-wear at the bottom. Still a presentable signed copy. NOTE on the title: "The Golden Compass" was not Pullman's original intended title, and it is known as "The Northern Lights" in the UK. The trilogy's working title was "The Golden Compasses", referencing a line from Paradise Lost by John Milton. Knopf, the US publisher, misunderstood the title as "The Golden Compass" (singular) and believed it was simply the title of the first book, not the trilogy. When Pullman changed the title of the trilogy to "His Dark Materials", he found out Knopf's misunderstanding. Knopf thought the title referenced the compass owned by Lyra. However, Knopf had become attached to the misunderstood title and insisted on publishing the first book as "The Golden Compass" which by all accounts, Pullman agreed to. The other two books, "The Subtle Knife" and "The Amber Spyglass" are identical to the UK titles. The story rings somewhat similar to the first Harry Potter book which is "Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone" in the UK and "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone" in the US, published just two years after "The Northern Lights".NOTE: All modern books with dust jackets come with dust jacket covers. ALSO: The picture is of the actual item for sale. (The picture is NOT a stock photo.)

The book and its contents are in clean, bright condition. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is crisp and clean. "Lyra Belacqua is content to run wild among the scholars of Jordan College, with her daemon familiar, Pantalaimon, always by her side. When her uncle, Lord Asriel, returns from the North with tales of mystery and danger, it seems to have little to do with her - even the rumor of the severed child. But his visit sets off a chain of events that draws Lyra into the heart of a terrible struggle." "The first book of Pullman's His Dark Materials trilogy, Northern Lights, won the 1995 Carnegie Medal from the Library Association, recognising the year's outstanding English-language children's book. For the 70th anniversary of the Medal it was named one of the top ten winning works by a panel, composing the ballot for a public election of the all-time favourite. It won the public vote from that shortlist and was thus named the all-time "Carnegie of Carnegies" in June 2007. It has been adapted as a film under its U. S. Title, The Golden Compass." .
