“Hither came Conan, the Cimmerian, black-haired, sullen-eyed, sword in hand, a thief, a reaver, a slayer, with gigantic melancholies and gigantic mirth, to tread the jeweled thrones of the Earth under his sandaled feet.”
Robert E. Howard
Stated "First Edition" of each of the seven original Conan titles from Gnome Press. The first five were written by Howard and the other two finished (from Howard's manuscripts) by L. Sprague de Camp. The last book written by de Camp and Bjorn Nyberg. Each volume housed in original issue dust jacket. ALL prices intact! Includes: Conan the Conqueror (PO bookplate); The Sword of Conan; King Conan (PO bookplate); The Coming of Conan; Conan the Barbarian; Tales of Conan (Toning); The Return of Conan. Boards clean and tight. DJ's exhibit minor wear to edges and folds, especially at spine ends. A bit of sunning here and there. Overall, a very attractive complete set of these important novels.
