RE: [mythsoc] Boxen: Childhood Chronicles Before Narnia
- Thanks for the information – I’ve requested a review copy for Mythlore. Nancy Patterson reviewed the first edition in 1985 in Mythlore #43. (If anyone has a particular interest in reviewing this when it comes in, please contact me off-list!)

It appears to be an expanded edition, yes. There's a long list of unpublished Boxen papers at the end of the original edition, and at least some of these are in the new edition.

after so long -- though I agree with Gibb that they probably wouldn't
have done well if released in the mid-sixties. I'm glad people are
now so hungry for anything by CSL that these can slip out in the
guise of 'pre-Narnia'. I think this makes a total of ten or eleven
books by Warnie all told, depending on how they're counted: six
French histories plus one edition as the seventh plus his
contribution to EPCW as a possible eighth, with his work on LETTERS
OF CSL (even though it didn't appear in the form he wanted), his
diaries, and now BOXEN rounding out the whole.
Of course if we count his unpublished set of family papers, the
Glad to hear it'll be reviewed in MYTHLORE.
