About This Item

London: Geoffrey Bles, 1956. Bound in the publishers original blue boards with silver title lettering to spine. This is the second impression of the first edition. A notoriously elusive Narnia title to encounter in the first or early impressions. All pages are present and correct. Book sits solid and square with all corners sharp. Housed in the beautiful Pauline Baynes dustwrapper with the illustrators exquisite silver chair to the front panel. Light wear and signs of handling otherwise a most presentable example of the dustwrapper. Protected in a removable archival booksleeve to preserve its condition. A jolly nice copy !. First Edition. Very Good +/Very Good +. Illus. by Pauline Baynes. FIRST EDITION.


The Silver Chair  finds King Caspian as grown man, and quite sad as it has been ten years since his son, Prince Rilian, has disappeared. Traveling through the wild lands of Narnia, Jill and Eustace must proceed on a perilous quest to find the Prince! On their way they find a marsh-wiggle, a race of giants, and a wicked Green Lady who has a plot to take Narnia under her control!
