The Golden Compass by Philip Pullman [HIS DARK MATERIALS #1]


U.S. First Edition printed in 1995 by Alfred A Knopf.  Previously published in the U.K. under the title "Northern Lights."

Hardcover with dust jacket in excellent condition.  Dust jacket is in great shape; some light wear to edges and corners.   

Book itself looks and reads beautifully; clean cover and bright white pages.  

Book one in the epic His Dark Materials trilogy.  Lyra is rushing to the cold, far North, where witch clans and armored bears rule. North, where the Gobblers take the children they steal--including her friend Roger. North, where her fearsome uncle Asriel is trying to build a bridge to a parallel world.

Can one small girl make a difference in such great and terrible endeavors? This is Lyra: a savage, a schemer, a liar, and as fierce and true a champion as Roger or Asriel could want--but what Lyra doesn't know is that to help one of them will be to betray the other.
