Signed C. S. Lewis Narnia Novel

    C. S. Lewis. The Voyage of the Dawn Treader. London: Geoffrey Bles, 1952.

    First edition. Signed by C. S. Lewis on the title page. Map to front endpaper. Illustrations by Pauline Baynes. 224 pages.

    Pale blue cloth over boards. Silver lettering to spine. Small spot on rear board. Slight fading to head and foot of spine. The dust jacket shows some mild soiling and has been reinforced with cello tape at the panel folds. Overall, very good.

    Third book published of The Chronicles of Narnia, and chronologically fifth in the series. First editions of the Narnia books are much sought-after, and rarely are signed copies encountered.

    "Lewis was perturbed by the simpering, wishy-washy way goodness was portrayed in most religious teaching, making children inevitably feel that it was much more glamorous to be bad. He agrees with the aesthetic tradition that art should teach by delighting, by making the reader enchanted with an ideal." (Bloom.)

    Bloom, Modern Fantasy Writers, 89. Curry, 311.
