This thirteen-volume series, published for the Yorkshire Archaeological Society between 1914 and 1965, is an extensive collection of the pre-thirteenth-century deeds and charters of Yorkshire, which had previously remained largely unpublished. The first three volumes were expertly edited by William Farrer (1861-1924), after whose death Charles Travis Clay (1885-1978) took up the task. The series was well respected for the quality of Farrer's editing, which was only surpassed by that of Clay in the later volumes. Volume 5 (1936) is the second of two devoted to the Honour of Richmond. This volume is given over to charters relating to the fees of the tenants. Each document is amply annotated and accompanied by a discussion of its content and points of interest. The volume also contains facsimile plates of select documents, and detailed indexes.
Roy Thomas' decade-long original run on CONAN THE BARBARIAN ranks as one of the greatest in comic book history, and it was crucial in making Conan an icon known the world over. In this Omnibus edition, Roy and his artistic collaborator John Buscema bring the saga of Bêlit and her quest for the crown of Asgulun to a conclusion. It's a tale that will forever change Conan's life. The adventures that follow feature an even more savage Conan, fiercer than ever and truly unbound. Also included are the Annual sequels to "The Hour of the Dragon", a What If? tale that places Conan in the middle of New York City and a massive trove of original art, essays and behind-the-scenes material.
