Signed by the author. First UK editions of Pullman's acclaimed fantasy trilogy, signed by the author on the title of The Northern Lights and complete with original dust-jackets.

His Dark Materials charts the coming of age stories of Lyra and Will as they traverse a series of parallel universes. The individual books in the trilogy have won a number of awards, including the 1995 Carnegie Medal for Northern Lights and the 2001 Whitbread Book of the Year award for The Amber Spyglass. The trilogy has spawned a number of adaptations, including the National Theatre's two-part dramatisation (2003-2004), New Line Cinema's Hollywood film adaptation (2007), and, most recently, an HBO/BBC television series (2019-).
