I like Christianity, literature, Ireland, being Anglican, horseback riding, travel, books, studying religions, ranch work, puppies, C.S. Lewis, Guinness, fields of grass, Oxford commas, and very large cups of tea.

We all want progress. But progress means getting nearer to the place where you want to be. And if you have taken a wrong turning, then to go forward does not get you any nearer. If you are on the wrong road, progress means doing an about-turn and walking back to the right road; and in that case the man who turns back soonest is the most progressive man. We have all seen this when doing arithmetic. When I have started a sum the wrong way, the sooner I admit this and go back and start again, the faster I shall get on. There is nothing progressive about being pig headed and refusing to admit a mistake.

awgusteen said: It could be a first American edition, minus the dust jacket

Hmm maybe, but I haven’t seen anything else like it. The first first edition looks like this without a dust jacket:

The following is the closest one I can find in appearance online; it’s exactly like mine in that the copyright pages just says “1950” and the cover format is the same, it’s just a different color:

Some help please? I found this copy of The Lion The Witch and The Wardrobe at Half Price Books, and I’ve never seen this edition before. I don’t think it’s first edition… Is it? It says “1950” as the copyright date, but there is no printing date or edition number anywhere on the cover. The pictures I posted contain the only information in the book regarding it’s publisher and dating. A google search brought up people asking the same question, except their copies seem to be blue and yellow instead of blue and green. Any thoughts?
