London : Geoffrey Bles, (1952). First edition. “There was a boy called Eustace Clarence Scrubb, and he almost deserved it. His parents called him Eustace Clarence ...

The third published (but fifth in chronological sequence) of the Chronicles of Narnia.
Post 8vo (21cm). (224)pp. Endpaper map. Plan. Illustrations by Pauline Baynes. Original pale blue boards, lettered in silver; slight lean; tips a little tanned; a touch bruised; some spotting, mainly of edges and endpapers; a good and sound copy in the Baynes pictorial dust-jacket – a little worn, chipped at extremities, lightly tanned, a little spotted and fingered, but substantially complete. With a neat contemporary ownership inscription on front free endpaper.

London : John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1955. First edition. The sixth instalment of “The Chronicles of Narnia”, taking us back to “the dawn of Narnian time and the day when the Beasts first talked, which was also the first day when people from our world first went to Narnia. It all happened because Diggory’s wicked uncle, who was a magician, sent him to the Wood Between the Worlds”.
Post 8vo (21cm). (184)pp. Illustrations by Pauline Baynes. Original green boards, lettered in silver; some spotting of edges and endpapers, but otherwise a very good copy in the original pictorial Pauline Baynes dust-jacket – lightly rubbed, a touch sunned, and a little spotted on inner flaps and lower panel, but also very good.
