Lewis, C.S.
All My Roads Before Me: The Diary of C.S. Lewis 1922-27.
A Fine copy in a Near Fine, unclipped dust jacket . This is Lewis's only autobiographical work other than "Surprised by Joy"; it begins when he is twenty-three and an atheist and covers much of his early life before he converted to Christianity. This is a detailed account of Lewis's twenties, during which, while living with Mrs. Janie Moore and her daughter Maureen, he struggled to win a fellowship at Oxford. Written at least partly for the entertainment of Moore (identified as "D"), the diary dwells on Lewis's friends, books, and reactions to the surrounding landscape, rarely on the inner circumstances that would soon prompt his conversion to Christianity. Lewis's diary does, however, furnish a vivid picture of post-World War I Oxford and helps explain the easy erudition he brought to such works as The Allegory of Love.

Lewis, C.S.
The Visionary Christian: 131 Readings. Selected and Edited by Chad Walsh.
A Near Fine tight copy in a Near Fine price-clipped dust jacket with a couple of short closed edge tears. This collection of 131 excerpts from Lewis's fiction and poetry all illustrating Christian ideas. Through fairy tales, allegories, dream visions, and science fiction, Lewis shows readers a Christianity alive and filled with promise. The religious themes are illustrated perhaps even more clearly in Lewis s fiction than in his nonfiction works. Each of these selections, chosen from the Narnia Chronicles, the Space Trilogy, and The Screwtape Letters, gives us a glimpse of C.S. Lewis himself: the man of the knowing voice, lustrous intellect, and soaring faith. The Christianity we find in his stories is not set down in coolly rational terms, but is painted in the glistening colors of a cosmos with the Creator at its center.

The Visionary Christian: 131 Readings. Selected and Edited by Chad Walsh.
A Near Fine tight copy in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with a couple of short closed edge tears and creases to the flaps. The readings in "Visionary Christian" are culled from some of C.S. Lewis's finest fiction and poetry. This collection of writings explores the eternal truths of Christianity in the accessible language of allegory, fairy tales, dream visions, and science fiction. From his children's classic The Chronicles of Narnia to the wisdom of Screwtape on marriage, democracy, and heaven, Lewis's literary imagination and extraordinary insight into the universe and God remain vivid and relevant for all times. The Visionary Christian is testimony to a true man of faith who continues to provide comfort and understanding to Christians around the world.

[Literary Essays] Lewis, C.S.
Selected Literary Essays.
A Near Fine copy with an ink line to the fore-edge in a Very Good plus unclipped dust jacket with two closed snags to the spine. Selected Literary Essays includes over twenty of C. S. Lewis’s most important literary essays, written between 1932 and 1962. The topics discussed in this volume range from Chaucer to Kipling, from "The literary impact of the authorized version" to "Psycho-analysis and literary criticism," to Shakespeare and Bunyan, and Sir Walter Scott and William Morris. Common to each essay, however, are the lively wit, the distinctive forthrightness, and the discreet erudition which characterize Lewis's best critical writing. Other works included in this uncommon collection are essays on John Donne, Jane Austen, Shelley, Dryden & Eliot, William Morris, Kipling, and other broader topics.
