Boy, I knew Sven was the god of Lewis trivia (eg, if someone asked "Does anyone know where Lewis might have used the phrase seven images of Weight?", we have come to expect that within 20 minutes Sven would reply with a post saying, "See the second paragraph on page 84 of the essay "Imagery in Dante's Comedy" from Studies in Medieval and Renaissance Literature), but for him to actually inform carol about information from a thread in Narniaweb? This takes the cake (and you can tell it's not carol posting as Sven in disguise because there is no reference to Narniaweb as a "sister site":-)

All the Narnian Book Covers

Did you mean http://www.narniaweb.com/forum/forum_po ... CRN=0&PN=1 ? Thank you; just what I was looking for. More or less - since most of all I am still hoping to find the pictures of all the seven covers of the very first (1950-1956) British edition. (It would be so interesting to compare "what ultimately became of them" - could someone help?).

The thread you suggested also opens A WHOLE NEW WORLD. It gives the reference to the stunning collection of the NARNIA TRANSLATIONS by Glen GoodKnight - http://inklingsfocus.com/index.html - a list of all the editions in all the 43 languages that have appeared so far! Including their foreign titles, the years of their publication, and the names of all their translators and artists.

What a way to celebrate 51 years since The Last Chronicle appeared!

Rat! he found breath to whisper, shaking. Are you afraid?
Afraid? murmured the Rat, his eyes shining with unutterable love.
Afraid! Of Him? O, never, never! And yet -- and yet -- O, Mole, I am afraid!
Then the two animals, crouching to the earth, bowed their heads and did worship.

Does sven or anyone know where I could find the complete list of all the editions (and printings?) of The Chronicles of Narnia from 1950 until 2007?

You might try Glen Goodknight at the link provided. We knew him years ago and I remember stopping at his place one time up in Los Angeles and seeing his amazing collection of the various editions (English and translations) of Tolkien works at the time -- and this was probably 25 years ago.
