Prince Caspian: The Return to Narnia was the second title to be published, in 1951 -- a sequel to The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe from the previous year. The jacket is of an unusually deep blue in its first issue, gaining a smidgeon of purple in later printings (together, unfortunately, with some sloppy colour registration).
