A rare 1956 first edition of C.S. Lewis’ novel, The Last Battle, was recently found by two volunteers at the National Trust’s second-hand bookshop in Mottisfont, England.  Volunteers Christine and Robert Williams were sorting through a delivery of donations to the bookstore when they came across the book.  It will be up for auction at Woolley & Wallis in Salisbury, England, on June 17.  It is estimated to auction for £700 – £1,000.
