In 1942 Lewis gave the Annual Shakespeare Lecture of the British Academy. As was their custom, when the Academy published its Proceedings they also published the lecture. The first sentence is, "A critic who makes no claim to be a true Shakespearian scholar and who has been honoured by an invitation to speak about Shakespeare to such an audience as this, feels rather like a child brought in at dessert to recite his piece before the grown-ups." London: Humphrey Milford Amen House for the Proceedings of the British Academy, 1942. First printing. Soft cover.Tan cover with black text. 18 pages. Bound with string.The covers are larger than the text and thus have a lot of edge wear. The covers are browned with age. Shelley and Son Books specializes in C.S.Lewis, J.R.R.Tolkien & the Inklings
