Out of the Silent Planet, 1st edn 1951 (6th printing) (C S Lewis)Here we have the sixth impression from 1951.  The jacket is identified as the 6th impression on the front flap, although the printing history within the book lists this as the fifth printing. However the list omits the 1945 printing so the jacket is correct and we have reserialized this ReproJacket accordingly. The first issue jacket had a different design, by Harold Jones.
