About the Collection

Since 2009, Dr. Jeremy Grinnell, who goes by Gordon Greenhill professionally, has been scouring libraries, used book stores, and the internet collecting publication data on C. S. Lewis’ books. While an exhaustive history of his editions is probably impossible, this catalog contains the most extensive collection of cover images and publication data in existence. It is now being offered online in hopes that fellow Lewis devotees will be able to review and expand its offerings from their own collections.

If you want to know more about him, you can check out Dr. Greenhill’s blog, where he talks about writing, myth, religion, C. S. Lewis, and anything else he finds interesting, at his Relics of Errus website.
