“I hope no one who reads this book has been quite as miserable as Susan and Lucy were that night; but if you have been – if you’ve been up all night and cried till you have no more tears left in you – you will know that there comes in the end a sort of quietness. You feel as if nothing is ever going to happen again.”

C.S. Lewis, The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

 

A rare first British printing of C.S. Lewis’s most iconic work – ‘The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe.” It was the first book, and still the best-known, of the “Chronicles of Narnia” series, all of which were illustrated by Pauline Baynes. This edition is important because, before it was published in America, Lewis made a few major adjustments to the book. It wasn’t until 1994 that publishers reverted to the original British printing for their worldwide print runs.

 

According to TIME Magazine, this story is considered one of the ‘All-Time 100 Novels,” and is widely read even to this day.
