About this Item

First American edition, first printing. Illustrated throughout by Pauline Baynes, including the frontispiece plan of the Dawn Treader. 8vo, publisher’s original blue cloth decorated on the upper and lettered on the spine cover in navy, in the original dustjacket. xiv, 175 pp. A very good copy of the book, the textblock essentially fine, the blue cloth just lightly mellowed, the jacket handsome in spite of some typical edgewear and a few chips and wrinkles. A HANDSOME COPY IN THE ORIGINAL DUSTJACKET. One of Lewis’ immensely popular books in the ‘Chronicles of Narnia’ series. Over the years since publication the Narnia books have joined "Oz", "Alice" and "Winnie" and ‘Middle-Earth" as a favorite ‘holiday’ spot for imaginative children. This title chronicles the voyage of the Dawn Treader, the first Narnian ship to be built since the Golden Age, which was commissioned by King Caspian, so that he might sail beyond the Lone Islands and on to the unknown Eastern Ocean to seek the Seven Great Lords. It is the third of the seven Narnia books and features a second return to the Narnia world by Edmund and Lucy Pevensie. There is an interesting manuscript note on the front free-fly noted Boston art and archetecture author Douglass Shand-Tucci commenting on his purchase of this first edition to celebrate events in the publication of his 1995 book "Boston Bohemia" on the life and architecture of Ralph Adams Cram.
