The Screwtape Letters

LEWIS, C.S.

LEWIS, C.S. The Screwtape Letters

Bles, 1942.

First edition. Original black cloth with white title label in scarce dustwrapper printed in red and black. A fine copy with a contemporary name to the front pastedown, beneath the flap of the dustwrapper in a very good dustwrapper indeed, with a tanned spine showing just a little wear to its head and faint spotting to the front panel, but an abnormally fresh example of a fragile production.

One of the author's most acclaimed books, encompassing Lewis' consummate abilities as both a storyteller and a theologian. The book takes the form of 31 letters from Screwtape, an urbane elder statesman of the underworld to his nephew, a novice devil, on how to procure the soul of a young Christian. The effect is both fiction and instruction, comic and deadly serious, and a genuinely original work.
The first edition, produced to wartime paper standards is uncommon, particularly with such a well preserved dustwrapper.
