Rare First-Edition LWW Book Signed by C. S. Lewis is Up for Auction!

C. S. Lewis gave this first-edition copy of The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe to Nicholas Hardie when he was just 12. Now 66, Mr. Hardie is auctioning the book with a value of £12,000. The book is rare because

  1. It was signed “Jack Lewis” - a name he used only with friends and family.
  2. It’s the first book to go on sale with this name.
  3. It’s the first signed copy of LWW to be auctioned!

The auction will take place on July 19 at Bloomsbury Auctions in London. Go to The Daily Mail for the complete story.
