First published in February 1942 this classic story takes the form of a humorous and perceptive exchange between two devils, CS Lewis delves into moral questions about good versus evil, temptation, repentance and grace. This wonderful tale provides a series of lessons in the importance of taking a deliberate role in Christian faith by portraying a typical human life, with all its temptations and failings, seen from devils' viewpoints.

In addition to The Chronicles of Narnia, The Screwtape Letters is seen as one of the most important works by the Oxford Fellow of Magdalen College. It proved an immediate hit in The Second World War where CS Lewis had become a hugely influential figure due to his reassuring Christian radio broadcasts.

Originally published in the February of 1942, this copy is a reprint from a year later in May 1943, published by Geoffrey Bles: The Centenary Press of London and dedicated to Lewis' great friend and fellow Inkling JRR Tolkien.

For a book produced to Wartime Economy Standards it has fared very well indeed. The pages are clean and tightly bound. It has some mild age-related tanning and some spotting to the outside edges and endpapers. This copy has not been written in and there are no other markings of previous ownership.

In dark blue/black cloth covered boards with a paper title plate. The boards are also in super condition being clean and un-faded. Has a bright paper title plate to the spine, with just some very minor creasing and edge wear.

This period copy is very evocative of wartime in its styling and is of great interest to fans of CS Lewis. Your vintage copy of The Screwtape Letters will be wrapped with care in tissue and ribbon and sent well packaged. I am always happy to add a gift card with a message to the parcel.

H 19 cm x W 13 cm, 160 pages, 0.2 kg. I dispatch worldwide daily from the UK. (There are just a very few countries which I am unable to ship to).

* If you would prefer for your book not to be decoratively wrapped and sent simply in the full protective packaging please add a note to the order.
