American Opinion Publishing: 20th Century Heroes (First Edition)
1 American Opinion Publishing: 20th Century Heroes (First Edition)
Appleton, WI American Opinion Publishing 2000 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Hardcover 
First edition. C. S. Lewis loathed politics. It is paradoxical that he (as well as G. K. Chesterton) is featured as a hero in this book published by the John Birch Society. Black cloth boards with gilt lettering in colorful dust wrapper. Both book and dust wrapper are fine. ΓΆβ?¬Ε?I believe that if we had not fallen...patriarchal monarchy would be the sole lawful government. But since we have learned sin, we have found, as Lord Acton says, that 'all power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.' The only remedy has been to take away the powers and substitute a legal fiction of equality. The authority of father and husband has been rightly abolished on the legal plane, not because this authority is in itself bad (on the contrary, it is, I hold, divine in origin), but because fathers and husbands are bad. Theocracy has been rightly abolished not because it is bad that learned priests should govern ignorant laymen, but because priests are wicked men like the rest of us. Even the authority of man over beast has had to be interfered with because it is constantly abused. C.S. Lewis, The Weight of GloryShelley and Son Books specializes in C.S.Lewis, J.R.R.Tolkien & the Inklings

The Question of God: C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud Debate God, Love, Sex, and the Meaning of Life, Armand M. Nicholi Jr.
6 Armand M. Nicholi Jr. The Question of God: C.S. Lewis and Sigmund Freud Debate God, Love, Sex, and the Meaning of Life
Free Press 2003 074324785X / 9780743247856 Paperback New Paperback 
Throughout the ages, many of the world's greatest thinkers have wrestled with the concept of -- and belief in -- God. It may seem unlikely that any new arguments or insights could be raised, but the twentieth century managed to produce two brilliant men with two diametrically opposed views about the question of God: Sigmund Freud and C. S. Lewis. They never had an actual meeting, but in "The Question of God," their arguments are placed side by side for the very first time. For more than twenty-five years, Armand Nicholi has taught a course at Harvard that compares the philosophical arguments of both men. In "The Question of God, " Dr. Nicholi presents the writings and letters of Lewis and Freud, allowing them to "speak" for themselves on the subject of belief and disbelief. Both men considered the problem of pain and suffering, the nature of love and sex, and the ultimate meaning of life and death -- and each of them thought carefully about the alternatives to their positions.The inspiration for the PBS series of the same name, "The Question of God" does not presuppose which man -- Freud the devout atheist or Lewis the atheist-turned-believer -- is correct in his views. Rather, readers are urged to join Nicholi and his students and decide for themselves which path to follow.Shelley and Son Books specializes in C.S.Lewis, J.R.R.Tolkien & the Inklings

The Essential Sermons (First American edition), Austin Farrer
7 Austin Farrer The Essential Sermons (First American edition)
Cambridge, MA Cowley 1991 First American Edition Paperback Very Good + Paperback 
Some have gone so far as to say that Farrer was the most important Anglican of the 20th century. Farrer was active with Lewis in the Socratic Club. He and his wife Katherine were among the few who remained close to Lewis while he was married to Joy. Farrer was a witness at Lewis's first marriage to Joy. There is a famous story of Joy falling and breaking her leg and just at that moment, the phone right beside her rang. It was Katherine Farrer who was able to call for an ambulance. Austin Farrer led Joy's funeral and read the lesson for Jacks. Blue soft cover with photo of Farrer on front. VG+ with an indented line on the back cover and a slightly upturned corner. No ownership marks and firm binding.Shelley and Son Books specializes in C.S.Lewis, J.R.R.Tolkien & the Inklings

After 1934 his profession was as a solicitor in London, from which he retired in 1959 aged 60. Thereafter he had many guest appointments as Visiting Professor in North America.

11 BENNETT, J. A. W., Editorion. Essays on Malory (First Edition)
Oxford University of Oxford Press at Clarendon Press 1963 First Edition Hardcover Near Fine No Jacket Hardcover 
Bennett was an Inkling and C. S. Lewis was a contributor. Many of the Inklings wrote about Arthurian subjects. When Lewis gave up the Chair of Medieval and Renaissance Literature at Cambridge, it was given to Bennett. Blue cloth boards with plain covers and gilt text on the spine. 147pp. There is a bit of marginalia in pencil, lightly written in pencil and informative. The book is very nice. Near fine. Lacking dust wrapper. Bennett studied first at University of Auckland, where he is described by biographer James McNeish as "poor and deserving" before going on to Merton College, Oxford, where, still indigent, he survived on a diet of Cornish pasties. In McNeish's book Dance of the Peacocks, he is noted as a member of what was to be described in British academe as the Oxford "New Zealand Mafia" (pp. 356-364), a loose-knit group of extraordinarily gifted young men from New Zealand who studied - many were Rhodes Scholars at Oxford University - before the Second World War. The link between them was to endure for the rest of their lives. It included John Mulgan, Dan Davin, James Munro Bertram, Desmond Patrick Costello, Charles Brasch, Norman Davis and Ian Milner. McNeish describes Bennett as "at an angle, separated by the exuberance of his scholarship, his saintliness, and his forgetfulness ...he considered himself lucky to have received the Scholarship [to Oxford], since he forgot to include any testimonials with his application.
