It is twenty years since the events of La Belle Sauvage: The Book of Dust Volume One unfolded and saw the baby Lyra Belacqua begin her life-changing journey.

It is almost ten years since readers left Lyra and the love of her young life, Will Parry, on a park bench in Oxford's Botanic Gardens at the end of the ground-breaking, bestselling His Dark Materials sequence.

Now, in The Secret Commonwealth, we meet Lyra Silvertongue. And she is no longer a child . . .


The second volume of Philip Pullman's The Book of Dust sees Lyra, now twenty years old, and her daemon Pantalaimon, forced to navigate their relationship in a way they could never have imagined, and drawn into the complex and dangerous factions of a world that they had no idea existed. Pulled along on his own journey too is Malcolm; once a boy with a boat and a mission to save a baby from the flood, now a man with a strong sense of duty and a desire to do what is right.

Theirs is a world at once familiar and extraordinary, and they must travel far beyond the edges of Oxford, across Europe and into Asia, in search for what is lost - a city haunted by daemons, a secret at the heart of a desert, and the mystery of the elusive Dust.


The Secret Commonwealth is truly a book for our times; a powerful adventure and a thought-provoking look at what it is to understand yourself, to grow up and make sense of the world around you. This is storytelling at its very best from one of our greatest writers.

Descrizione libro Hardcover. Condizione: New. Condizione sovraccoperta: New. Chris Wormell (illustratore). 1st Edition. First edition, first printing. SIGNED to title-page. This is a pristine copy of the "signed special edition", also known as the "indie" edition. It was only made available to independent booksellers within the UK. This edition includes an extra exclusive illustration by Chris Wormell not included in the regular trade edition, and the boards bear a different design too. Very Fine (as new) in dust-wrapper. Complete with the promotional bookmark. Also complete with BOTH states of the promotional pre-release sampler. These small, concertina-style, folding booklets (measuring approx. 4" x 6"), will prove essential components to any package of the new book, and pairings of the two samplers together will not prove too common, I imagine. (Note: the first sampler contains the extract that begins "As darkness was falling." The second sampler bears the "exclusive new extract" roundel to the front, and contains the "Moonlight and Bloodshed" extract). There was also a rather nice promotional cloth tote bag released to accompany the book's release, and we are happy to enclose one with this listing. Offered by D B WATERS RARE BOOKS: Professional, full-time booksellers of fine, select 1st editions, established in 1998. All our stock is fully guaranteed as authentic, a sample of which is presented here on this website.
