Description: London, Century. 1989, First British Edition. (ISBN: 0712629793) Hard Cover with dust jacket. 781 pp, 9 1/2" H. B&w map. "Under the ruthless leadership of Henbane of Whern, the grikes have taken over moledom and soon, under Lucerne, her son by Tryfan, their ascendancy is to be consol-idated and the last followers of the Stone rooted out and killed. Duncton Wood has been sealed off and made a colony for aging and diseased mole outcasts whose sterile feuding and self-hatred the grikes believe will destroy forever the legendary system's spiritual power. Yet it is here, in the shadow of hopelessness and death, that the Stone Mole has been born. His name is Beechen, and the aging Tryfan is entrusted with preparing him for his great task of showing all moles how the Stone's Silence may finally be known. As young Beechen sets forth from Duncton Wood, he finds that all the dark forces of the evil Word have been unleashed against him - and that he will need the courage and faith of other moles, young and old - the much-loved Mayweed, intelligent Sleekit, strong Alder, nervous Bailey and grubby Holm - if hope is to survive." Slight cracking at free front endpaper and half-title page - pages holding firmly, very small minor bump at top/bottom of front hinge, a few very tiny foxing marks on top of text block, minor shelf soiling on bottom of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wrinkling - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, tiny tear at bottom of rear hinge, some tiny light foxing marks at top/bottom edge of rear flap, jacket is protected in a mylar sleeve. Very Good/Very Good.
