The Dark Is Rising

London: Chatto & Windus, 1973

8vo, pp. 216. Original brown boards, lettered in gilt on spine. Top edge a little dusty, but a near fine copy in a very good dustwrapper, one small closed tear to front flap, and a smaller one still to head of spine.

First UK edition, published a month after its US counterpart.
The second book in the five-volume sequence published between 1965 and 1977, and known by this novel's name. The Dark Is Rising was filmed in 2007 with Ian McShane and Christopher Eccleston, but met with unanimous disapproval from the novels' legions of fans.
Scarce in dustwrapper.
