handwritten books

Offer: surprise box of YA books

Offer: Diana Wynne Jones' The Dalemark Quartet in hardcover

Item Name & Description: All four volumes of Diana Wynne Jones' The Dalemark Quartet:


  1. Cart & Cwidder

  2. Drowned Ammet

  3. The Spellcoats

  4. The Crown of Dalemark


All of these are Greenwillow (US) hardcover editions. Unfortunately they are not an entirely matched set, as Crown is the first US edition and the other three volumes are from the 2001 reprints (with the blue covers). They are all in good condition, but do have minor jacket wear and remainder marks.

Starting Bid: $10

Notes: I will mail the books within a few days of the payment notification. I will only ship these in the US, as the cost elsewhere would unfortunately be very high.
