Another Proofreading

Posted by Joel Heck on Monday, July 1, 2013

I have just finished proofreading (again) the first hundred pages. I have been looking for improved formatting, corrections of spelling, more complete information (such as the mention of an occasional author's name instead of just the title), and context (with the elimination of contradictions in context). This has resulted in the discovery of a few mistakes, such as the listing of two honorary doctorates in 1946, the conferral of the first one probably being an error (although it remains in place with the appropriate footnote--that may have been the day St. Andrew's decided to confer the degree on Lewis). The second one has Warren Lewis' diary as documentation, a much better source. St. Andrew's University would not have conferred to honorary Doctor of Divinity degrees in the same year on the same person. With each additional hundred pages, I will upload the next file.

I have decided to include below almostall of the Spotlights that I have posted thus far, since they are often important, but little known, events in the life of C. S. Lewis. That file appears below, in case some readers have missed some of the previous postings. There are seven postings in that file, and I invite people to submit a candidate for the next posting.

The file that appears below lists all works of C. S. Lewis in chronological order (now 528 in number) in the location where they were first published or delivered (if spoken) as far as I am able to determine. Corrections are welcome. This version, slightly revised and added on May 13, 2020, includes a corrected date for "Transposition" on June 9, 1946.
