274 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w illustrations. "Life in the rare book business can be filled with excitement and surprise, as described by David Magee, San Francisco antiquarian bookseller, in this witty and highly civilized account of some of his adventures here and abroad. With lively humor and sophistication, Mr. Magee entertains and enlightens as he tells amusing and suspenseful anecdotes about the people he has encountered, the places he has visited, and the events he has attended in the course of nearly half a century in the rare book trade. (His) vignettes of the many and varied clients, confreres, dear friends and strangers with whom he has dealt are a charming pageant of human beings - sometimes eccentric, amusing or moving - always vivid to the reader." Very small stamp mark (bird) on top of text block, minor wrinkle at top of spine, light toning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, light browning at inside edges and on flap-folds, one tiny edge tear.

The first 6 books of "The Chronicles of the Cheysuli" in 5 volumes - 7" H. 1. Shapechangers: 221 pp, 1984 14th printing, ISBN 0886771404 - "They were the Cheysuli, a race of magical warriors gifted with the ability to assume animal shape at will. For centuries they had been allies to the King of Homana, treasured champions of the realm. Until a king's daughter ran away with a Cheysuli liege man and caused a war of annihilation against the Cheysuli race. This is the story of Alix, the daughter of that ill-fated union - and her struggle to master the call of magic in her blood, and accept her place in an ancient prophecy she cannot deny." 2. The Song of Homana: 352 pp, 1985 2nd printing, ISBN 0886770572 - "The time has come for Prince Carillon, Homana's rightful ruler, to return from exile with his Cheysuli shapechanger liege men, free his land from the evil domination of the tyrant Bellan and his villainous magicians, restore the Cheysuli to their rightful position of grace, and claim his birthright. To do this, he would not only have to raise an army, but overcome the fear and prejudice of an ignorant population and answer the call of a prophecy he never chose to serve!" 3. Legacy of the Wolf (containing Legacy of the Sword and Track of the White Wolf): 764 pp, 2001 1st printing thus, ISBN 0886779979 - Legacy of the Sword - "In the aftermath of the revolution which overthrew the hated tyrant, Prince Donal is being trained as the first Cheysuli in generations to assume the throne. But will he be able to overcome the prejudice of a populace afraid of his special magic and succeed in uniting the realm in its life and death battle against enemy armies and evil magicians? - Track of the White Wolf - "Niall, Prince of Homana, key player in a prophecy that spans generations, should have been the treasured link between Cheysuli and Homanan. Yet neither of the peoples he is destined to someday rule feel anything but suspicion of Niall. Homanans fear him for his Cheysul heritage, while Cheysuli refuse to accept him as their own because he has acquired neither a lir-shape nor the lir companion which is the true mark of the Cheysuli shapechangers. And now, Niall must undertake a journey to fulfill yet another link in the ancient prophecy. He must travel through war-torn lands to claim his bride - a mission which may well prove his doom." 4. A Pride of Princes: 453 pp, 1988 7th printing, ISBN 0886772613 - "Brennan, Hart, and Corin (are) the three Cheysuli sons of Niall, ruler of Homana, and the next link in the generations-old prophecy of the Firstborn. Now the time had come for all three to take the paths for which they were fated. Three princes, three destinies - and if even one should fail to fulfill the patterns of prophecy, Homanan and Cheysuli alike would pay a deadly price." 5. Daughter of the Lion: 372 pp, 1989 9th printing, ISBN 0886773245 - "She is Keely, twin sister of Corin, and daughter of Niall, the ruler of Homana, and she alone has the power to shapechange into any form, a power akin to that of the Firstborn. And like her brothers, Keely has been chosen to play a crucial part in the Firstborn's prophecy. Yet she is no weak pawn to be used in men's games of power and diplomacy. Trained alongside her brothers in the art of war, gifted with more of the old magic than most of her close kin, she will not easily give way to even Niall's commands, nor be forced against her will into an arranged marriage. Strahan, the most powerful Ihlini sorcerer, is already planning a trap from which even one as magic-gifted as Keely may find not escape. And in the deepwood, another waits to challenge Keely, an outlaw fully as dangerous to her future freedom as Strahan is to her life." Interiors - book 5 has slight browning on inside of covers, book 2 has a soft crease at fore-edge of pages 171-to 184, otherwise books clean and tight with no other ownership marks. Exteriors - very light edge wear, book 2 has a light scuff across fore-edge of text block, book 4 has five very small dents/scuffs on rear cover.
