Essays presented to Charles Williams
The First UK Printing published by Oxford University Press in 1947. The BOOK is in Very Good+ condition. Some pushing and light fading to the spine ends. Corers bumped. Light toning and spotting to the text block which has encroached on to the page edges in places. Light offsetting and spotting to the prelims. Free from inscriptions. The fragile thin paper WRAPPER is complete and is in Very Good+ condition. It bears the correct price of 12s 6d. net. The rear lower flap fold is clipped. Some toning to the spine with some loss at the spine ends. Some tape to the spine ends on the verso which shows through to the front. A few age related markings but the wrapper presents well in the removable Brodart archival cover. A collection of essays to act as a memorial of friendship between the poet and author Charles Williams (who had died in 1945). The various contributors include C.S. Lewis, Dorothy Sayers and J.R.R.Tolkien. Williams had been a close friend of Tolkien and Lewis. He had been part of Lewis' literary society, 'The Inklings Group'. Williams published prose and poetry and was the author of the acclaimed fantasy title 'The Place Of The Lion' which C.S. Lewis had greatly admired. A very scarce title more-so with the original wrapper.
