Men Without Chests
(First a lecture from 2/24/1943 from the eventual The Abolition of Man)

Question: Hooper and Heck have “The Abolition of Man” published Jan 6, 1943, and then the lectures in February. Did Lewis publish first then read the lectures? That seems weird.
While I haven’t held a copy of a first edition in my hands, my understanding it the cover of it shows the 1943 date, but somewhere inside it reflects a 1944 published date.
Recently I copy of De Descriptione Temporum and while it doesn’t have a date on the cover the copyright information is in the back on the 23rd page…so, this may be the case the Abolition, except the cover shows the lecture date.
It’s a mystery to me!
