London: Egmont [and] New York, NY: HarperCollinsPublishers, 2001-2004. [Children's Fantasy] MIXED COLLECTION. 12 volumes. Octavo (19 x 13 x 28cm). With in-text illustrations by Helquist. Including volumes 1-11 of the series (lacking volumes 12 and 13), as well as the autobiography. All UK first editions, except volumes 6 and 7, which are US first editions. Volumes 5 and the autobiography complete with wrap-around bands; volume 8 with the dust-jacket. All in publisher's paper-covered boards illustrated by Helquist. US editions with untrimmed fore-edges. A little light rubbing and bumping. Essentially a fine collection. "Mr. Handler's literary opera buffa of calamity has been a children's book phenomenon second only to Harry Potter in this era. Narrated by Lemony Snicket, a sketchy figure whose own life becomes increasingly part of the plot, the tales chronicle the unrelenting misfortunes of the three Baudelaire siblings, who become orphans when their parents perish in a terrible fire..."
