1 Anthony, Piers A Spell for Chameleon (Xanth Series #1)
New York Del Ray / Ballantine 1980 0345287665 / 9780345287663 Eighth Printing Mass Market Paperback Good 
Illustrated by Whelan, Michael (cover)

Spine somewhat creased, slanted, sunned. Corners bumped, some edge wear/chipping, small tear at base of spine to front cover. Slight yellowing.

First of the Xanth series.
"Xanth! That was the enchanted land where magic ruled -- where every citizen had a special spell only he could cast. It was a land of centaurs and dragons and basilisks. For Bink of North Village, however, Xanth was no fairy tale. He alone had no magic. And unless he got some -- and got some fast! -- he would be exiled. Forever!
But the Good Magician Humfrey was convinced that Bink did indeed have magic. In fact, both Beauregard the genie and the magic wall chart insisted that Bink had magic. Magic as powerful as any possessed by the King or by Good Magician Humfrey -- or even by the Evil Magician Trent.
Be that as it may, no one could fathom the nature of Bink's very special magic. Bink was in despair. This was even worse than having no magic at all . . . and he would still be exiled!"; 6" - 7" Tall

This is the sequel to 'On a Pale Horse', the first book in the Incarnations of Immortality series.
"When life seemed pointless to Norton, he accepted the position as the Incarnation of Time, even though it meant living backward from present to past.
The other seemingly all-powerful Incarnations of Immortality -- Death, Fate, War, and Nature -- made him welcome. Even Satan greeted him with gifts.
But he soon discovered that the gifts were cunning traps. While he had been distracted, he had become enmeshed in a complex scheme of the Evil One to destroy all that was good.
In the end, armed only with the Hourglass, Norton was forced to confront the immense power of Satan directly. And though Satan banished him to Hell, he was resolved to fight on."; 12mo - over 6" - 7" tall

Illustrated by Whelan, Michael (cover)

Corners bumped, some shelf wear.

"Dor was having troubles growing up to be the next Magician-King of the magic Land of Xanth. He wanted no part of running the kingdom. But now Good King Trent was leaving on a trade mission to non-magical Mundania, home of such weird beasts as horses and bears, so Dor had to take over as King for a week.
A week passes. No Trent. Then three weeks. King Trent still hadn't returned. Surely, something terrible had happened; he was apparently held captive in some foul dungeon, unable to escape. Dor was left with the burden of ruling -- and with Irene, who was entirely too willing to be his Queen!
His only hope was to enter Mundania and free King Trent. But how could it be done without the powers of magic? Nevertheless, he started forth bravely -- together with Irene, a golem, a centaur, and a young ogre -- heading for the far south of Xanth.
The entrance to Mundania, of course, lay to the north."; 6" - 7" Tall

"Jordan was a ghost in Castle Roogna now, spending his time with little five-year-old Ivy and watching his own past unfold on the magic tapestry. But once he had been a valorous knight, riding his ghost horse Pook on a fabulous and dangerous mission. He had been betrayed with a cruel lie by two wily magicians and the woman he loved. He had been killed at the end, and his bones had been scattered. Now he could not even remember where they had been buried. That was important, because Jordan's talent had been to recover from almost any injury, provided enough of his body could be assembled to grow together again. But all that had been four hundred years before. Nobody who was alive today knew or cared where his bones might be. It was hardly the proper ending for a gallant adventure!"; 6" - 7" Tall
