Green was one of Lewis's closest friends in the fifties and he was likely the person that worked most closely with Lewis on the Narniad.

Hooper was Lewis's personal secretary in the final months of Lewis's life and has played and still plays a key role in seeing the works of Lewis get published. Since Shelley and Son Books is located in North Carolina, vanity requires that we mention that Hooper is a North Carolinian.Plain grayish blue cloth boards with gilt text on the spine. ...
