Lewis, C. S.
London: Geoffrey Bles, 1953. pp. 217, b/w illustrations, original map end papers to the front, blank to the back. Unfortunately only the front panel and front panel of the original dust jacket is present, but this has now been expertly repaired and mounted by a professional paper conservator using the finest conservation materials - methyl celloluse and hand-made Japanese Kozu Shi tissue paper, replacing the missing parts with this paper so it can still wrap around the book. This ensures that the dust jacket is displayed to its best potential and arrests any further deterioration (and a conservation process that is fully reversible). The dust jacket is not price clipped showing 10s 6d net and is now protected in a clear removable archival sleeve. Original blue hard back binding with silver-gilt lettering to the spine, very good and bright with a little rubbing to edges and a little fading to the central area of the spine. Contents clean and tight, no inscriptions, minimal spotting to end papers. A very good first edition copy in a restored original (part of) dust jacket.. First Edition. Hardback. Very Good/Poor. Illus. by Baynes, Pauline. 8vo.
