Dent, 1926.

First edition. Original blue cloth with mock-snakeskin design with titles in gilt to the spine and black vignette to the upper cover. Publisher's adverts dated Autumn 1926 to rear. Pictorial title page designed by Reginald L. Knowles. A near fine copy, light toning to spine, some spotting to prelimaries.

C.S.Lewis's second book, published like his first, under the pseudonym comprising his Christian name and his mother's maiden name. An epic narrative poem which he began writing in his first year at Oxford, before breaking off for the War. It is clearly influenced by Spencer and Milton, but also by Norse mythology.
