1980 Fontana Lions paperback

The Collins “Fontana Lions” paperback editions were published in 1980 after Collins had acquired the paperback rights to The Magician's Newphew and The Last Battle, with new cover art by Stephen Lavis. All maps that were in the first editions were included, except for the map in The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.

This was the first time that the books were reordered in “Chronological Order”, meaning their chronology in Narnian time, rather than the published order which had been used until this time.
