Read full description of the books:
The Thieves' Guild celebrates its 21st anniversary with its first Yearbook, featuring an address from Lord Vetinari himself, who encouraged the setting-up of the Guild to avoid the random, unfair and disorganised crime which, until his ascent to power, plagued the great city of Ankh-Morpork. Now crime is legal, organised and run to an annual budget and everyone is happy - well, almost everyone: woe betide the unlicensed thief, highwayman or slipperlegger who tries to do business without Guild approval!
