The 'Gormenghast' trilogy introduces Titus, the seventy-seventh Earl of Groan, and the riotous massing of the castle in which stultified tradition staggers on and provides room enough for the murderous rivalry of Flay and Swelter and the evil designs of Steerpike. Will the child survive to find a world beyond the walls of Gormenghast? With the exception of the torn, 'Second Impression' dust-wrapper on Titus Groan, this is a very presentable set.
