Essays Presented to Charles Williams
London: Oxford University Press,, 1947. Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket. Head of spine a little rubbed, a couple of insignificant pale marks to head of front cover, foxing to edges of text block. An excellent copy in the slightly nicked jacket, spine toned, a little loss to ends of spine panel. First edition, first impression, of this very scarce work. This collection of essays was intended to be presented to Charles Williams, editor at Oxford University Press and author on literature and theology, to mark his departure from Oxford (where the Oxford University Press had been based since 1939) to London. Unfortunately Williams died before the presentation could occur and this work became a posthumous celebration of his life, with a memoir written by C. S. Lewis. Lewis and J. R. R. Tolkien contributed essays, as did Dorothy Sayers, A. O. Barfield, Gervase Mathew, and W. H. Lewis.
