A Myth Retold.London: Geoffrey Bles, 1956 Stock Code: 132184
NotesFirst edition, first impression, of Lewis's retelling of the myth of Cupid and Psyche, a work first referred to in his diary in 1923, but not finished for a further three decades. Finally written in a "full flush of inspiration... it was certainly his most unexpected book, and his greatest tour de force; to many readers, and probably to himself, his best work of fiction (even if Perelandra remained his favourite)" (Green & Hooper, C. S. Lewis: A Biography, 1974, p. 265).
Octavo. Original blue cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With the dust jacket.
A very nice copy, with some spotting to the jacket as often, but without wear to the extremities.
