Features: Five-volume set of THE BELGARIAD: PAWN OF PROPHECY, QUEEN OF SORCERY, MAGICIAN'S GAMBIT, CASTLE OF WIZARDRY, ENCHANTERS' END GAME. Century Publishing, London. 1983, 1983, 1984, 1984, 1985. All but volume #3 are first hardcover editions. The first hardcover editions of these books were done in England in very small numbers, sometimes just a few hundred copies. These books are not to be confused with the common later American editions. ( New bibliographic information on Vol. 3 -- MAGICIAN'S GAMBIT -- states that all copies of Vol. 3 have the notice at the bottom on the copyright page that reads: "Reprinted in Great Britain by Billing & Sons Limited, Worcester." If this is true than all volumes in this set are first hardcover editions.)
