New York Harper Trophy 2002 0064471101 / 9780064471107 27th Edition Mass Market Paperback Very Good 
Illustrated by Baynes, Pauline; Nielsen, Cliff (cover)

Corners slightly bumped, binding tight. A bright, attractive copy.

Volume 6 -- How Aslan created Narnia and gave the gift of speech to its animals.
"'This is a very important story,' the author explains at the start, 'because it shows how all the comings and goings between our own world and the land of Narnia first began.' Two children, Polly and Digory, live next door to one another in a street of old tall London houses. Exploring on a wet cold afternoon, they discover a little door in an attic which leads to a long dark corridor connecting their two homes. That is how they stumble on to the secret workroom of Digory's scientific uncle. And that is how - for his scientific experiments are of no ordinary kind - they find themselves transported to some of the strangest scenes in the story.
"If you wish to know the answer to this, to be present at the very creation of Narnia, in the enchanted realm of Aslan the Lion, you have only to follow Polly and Digory through the attic door. "

The Screwtape Letters, Lewis, C. S.
11 Lewis, C. S. The Screwtape Letters
New York Collier Books 1982 0020867409 / 9780020867401 Revised Edition; Fourteenth Printing Mass Market paperback Very Good- 


Spine slightly slanted, corners bumped, a little edge wear and rubbing, light tanning but text is clean and unmarked. A nice copy. ; Xv + 172 pp. Includes 1961 preface by Lewis, along with 1962 preface to 'Screwtape Proposes a Toast', which was not published until 1982. ; 7" - 9" Tall; 172 pages;

From the Editors' Preface to an earlier edition: "C. S. Lewis The Screwtape Letters is one of the great incongruities of modern literature: a moral tract which was also a sensational bestseller. Cast in the form of a one-way correspondence - the helpful letters of an otherworldly-wise demon to his nephew, an apprentice in the business - it has a rich and civilized wit. But the book is not exactly sidesplitting. Nor is it salacious. Nor shocking. Nor even novel. So why did over half a million Americans buy Screwtape when most people in the book publishing business would unhesitatingly have labeled it a most unlikely candidate to succeed? Any attempt at an answer must be regarded as highly tentative, a mere shadow of a hypothesis, one requiring a brief excursion into theology and the morality of modern times."
