Comments

A nice early hardcover edition of one of the greatest occult fantasy novels of the last 50 years or so. Set in an alternate early 19th Century England,in a world where magic exists, but the magicians of the day believe it to have died out several hundred years before. Enter one Mr Gilbert Norrell, who owns a large collection of "books of magic" which he has spent years purchasing in order to to keep them out of the hands of others. He can indeed *practice* magic, and he succeeds in making the statues in York Cathedral speak. Norell is a sort of John Dee like figure, and he takes on as an apprentice the young Jonathan Strange, who is writing a book on 'The History and Practice of English Magic'. Much folkore is involved in the tale - the Raven King, Fairy Castles, etc - and much discussion of the ways and means of magic. Soon to be a BBC mini-series.
