About This Item

London: Geoffrey Bles: The Centenary Press, 1946. First edition of C.S. Lewis' anthology of extracts from the sermons and writings of George Macdonald. Octavo, original cloth. Very good in the rare original dust jacket. Jacket design by Mansell. An exceptional example. Lewis states in his introduction to the present volume, "In making this collection I am discharging a debt of justice. I have never concealed the fact that I regard George Macdonald as my master; indeed I fancy I have never written a book in which I did not quote from him... It must be almost thirty years ago that I bought - almost unwillingly... the Everyman edition of Phantastes. A few hours later I knew I had crossed a great frontier.
