The Lewis List (About)

So, here's the list of my shelves of secondary works re. Lewis -- biographies, criticism, and the like. It's obviously far less complete than that of works actually by Lewis, given that I mainly concentrate on books that cast light on JRRT or the Inklings, but also because the secondary literature on Lewis is now so vast (what, about 200 books?) and much of it lies outside my interests (e.g., books on Narnia, books about his apologetics).

As before, some books that cd well be listed aren't here because they're shelved elsewhere. For example, Adey's book on Lewis's 'Great War' with Barfield (a classic) is shelved with the Barfield, the published version of Pavlac-Glyer's book is with the Tolkien, et al. And also as before, I've read some books I don't have, and I've by no means read all the books on Lewis that I own.

Recommendations welcome re. which out of the vast sea of books on Lewis I really ought to add.
