An inquiry about the original edition of Lewis's Miracles

Dr. Reppert,
I have just read your book on C. S. Lewis and really appreciated it.  I am currently earning an MA in Philosophy, and my project for the year is Lewis' book on miracles.  Do you know any way I could obtain a copy of the first edition, or at least of chapter three, before he responded to Anscombe's criticisms?

Jim: You can find copies of the old edition in libraries. Just check to see that it is indeed the 1947 edition (usually hardback). Also, a yellow paperback edition from the 1960s and 1970s is of the old edition.
