Charles Williams to Victor Gollancz

Category: Literature :: Permalink

The other day, I requested a copy of a book by C. S. Lewis’s good friend, Charles Williams.  And what did the library end up giving me?  Not only a first edition of the book, somewhat frail and held together with a rubber band and stuck in an envelope for safety, but the autographed copy that Williams himself gave to the well-known British publisher, Victor Gollancz.

And they sent this to me, a total stranger, with no idea how trustworthy I might be or (apparently) how valuable the book might be.

    “The book was so tattered and worn that I have taken the liberty of purchasing a new copy for the library.”
