Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 1961. Book. Near Fine. Hardcover. First Edition. Cambridge: at the University Press, 1961. First edition, American issue. This classic work springs from the conviction that literature exists for the joy of the reader and that books should be judged by the kind of reading they invite. Lewis argues that "good reading," like moral action or religious experience, involves surrender to the work in hand and a process of entering fully into the opinions of others: "in reading great literature I become a thousand men and yet remain myself." Small octavo. Original red cloth binding, with black titles. Light browning along the extremities of the dust jacket, with a short closed tear to the front panel; else very good or better..
