As well as enjoying Tolkien, I've also taken an interest in CS Lewis and his works, both Christian apologetics and fiction. I was just curious if there were any sites for CS Lewis similar to the Tolkien collecting sites? I've looked around to no avail...any help is appreciated! thanks

I have a reasonable collection of CS Lewis and I remember from some while ago that a forum started up called the Stone Table. Just had a google and its still there. Doesn't seem to have a lot of traffic but you might like to have a look.

Thanks Roccondil. What of CS Lewis do you enjoy collecting? I have been trying to find printing information for books like The Screwtape Letters and Mere Christianity. I know there's probably not great value in first printings (or maybe there is) of books like Mere Christianity, but I'm interested none the less. Thanks again

Well, I've got a little of everything really, although I'm not quite as obsessive as with Tolkien. Like my Tolkien interests, it derives from what I found pleasure in reading when I was young. I have 1sts of the space trilogy and of the Narnia books (though mostly later impressions) and quite a lot of his religous and other books. I suppose my CS Lewis 'lucky find' was a 1st impression Screwtape in a book sale a few years ago. The interaction between Lewis and Tolkien has always fascinated me as well and I have several books covering that area. My most recent acquisition was mentioned in a thread on here and was a Pauline Baynes-signed illustration from The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe.

I've only recently been able to get all my Lewis and Tolkien books into a purpose-built library area, so now at last I can see what I've been collecting over the last few years. (How on earth did I end up with 5 copies of Morgoth's Ring? I've no idea...)

Peeta, this book should help you out:http://www.amazon.com/Pursuit-C-Lewis ... in+pursuit+of+c.+s.+lewis

It contains a decent bibliography of Lewis' 1st/1sts and distinguishing points.

I collect Lewis' first printings and some of them are quite valuable, especially a LW&W 1st, 1st with dj.
