About this deal

A wonderful production; the first 65 copies (of 315) are accompanied by a set of signed engravings; copies 16-65 are printed letterpress on mould-made Somerset paper and bound in leather (copies from the higher limitation were bound in cloth). The sale of customised goods or perishable goods, sealed audio or video recordings, or software, which has been opened. In exquisite prose, Philip Pullman cuts new windows into his worlds for the reader to step through and reveals new truths about many of the iconic characters from Lyra's universe.

He explains how the title came about: "The notion of dark matter struck me as an intensely poetic idea, that the vast bulk of the universe is made up of stuff we can't see at all and have no idea what it is. At Books2Door, we believe that reading is a fundamental skill that every child should have to help improve their vocabulary, grammar, and critical thinking skills.Pullman followed the trilogy with three novellas set in the Northern Lights universe: Lyra's Oxford (2003), Once Upon a Time in the North (2008), and Serpentine (2020).

Lyra's alethiometer is stolen by Lord Boreal alias Sir Charles Latrom, an ally of Mrs Coulter who has found a way to Will's Oxford and established a home there.

I thought such a claim was laughable, which is a shame because I know some folk who have been put off reading them because of that claim.

Purchase with confidence: all books, gradings, and descriptions are rendered the care of a genuine bibliophile. Mulefa are four-legged wheeled animals; they have one leg in front, one in back, and one on each side. The book ends with Will and Lyra falling in love but realising they cannot live together in the same world, because all windows – except one from the underworld to the world of the Mulefa – must be closed to prevent the loss of Dust, because with every window opening, a Spectre would be created and that means Will must never use the knife again.She draws Lyra into a trap, but birds mysteriously rescue her and Pan and she makes the acquaintance of an alchemist who was formerly the witch's lover.
