C.S. Lewis on Reading Old Books

A web site seems to have reproduced Lewis's noteworthy introduction to Athanasius's, The Incarnation of the Word, in which he waxes eloquent on the virtues of reading old books and the dangers reading only the new. (I am very surprised to see this much verbatim Lewis on line since the C.S. Lewis proprietors keep a very strict reign on his words.)
