1 Alexander, Lloyd Taran Wanderer
New York Holt, Rinehart & Winston 1967 First Edition Hard Cover SIGNED by the Author
Near Fine in a Very Good dustjacket. Blue-green boards. Both the spine and the front panel are stamped in blue. Light blue endpapers. 256pps. Stated First Edition. There is mild rubbing wear to the extremities and a neatly penned gift inscription on the ffep, otherwise fine: clean, tight, square and bright. The text is immaculate; no apparent reading wear. The price-clipped dustjacket, glossy in a mylar sleeve, is lightly soiled and sundarkened and there is modest chipping at the extremities. A 1" closed tear is at the top of the rear jacket fold. Simply SIGNED by the author on the title-page. A very nice (and scarce) collector's-quality copy.

Accompanied by the faithful Gurgi, he goes first to the three wily enchantresses of the Marshes of Morva who send him to consult the Mirror of Llunet to learn who he is with the cryptic promise that 'the finding takes no more than the looking.' Joined by some of his old friends, Taran, sidetracked time and time again by exciting adventures, eventually comes to the rugged wasteland where the shepherd Craddoc lives and for a time gains a father -- and comes to know shame.
In a deeply moving climax at the Mirror of Llunet which is not an ending but a beginning, Taran Wanderer learns who he is and the secret of the Mirror -- which the wily Enchantresses had known all along..."
