First edition, first impression. This epistolary work consists of one side of a correspondence between the fiendish mentor Screwtape and his underling Wormwood. In the course of the book Wormwood is guided through the process of cheating the “patient” out of his soul. Far from being sententious and worthy Lewis achieves both his ends with both wit and humour.

Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in black morocco, titles to spine gilt, twin rule to turn-ins, marbled endpapers, gilt edges. A fine copy.
