Published by Jonathan Cape, London; 1983. No dustjacket issued. This lovely copy of the children’s book by the ever-popular Roald Dahl is in Near Fine condition. It is tightly bound in original illustrated boards, with no marks or damage to speak of apart from the slightest of bumping to the spine ends and corner, a very slight lean to the spine and some slight rubbing to the boards. Internally, the pages are clean and bright and, other than a couple of smudge marks to a few pages and a small 1cm tear to the bottom edge of one page, it is in lovely condition both inside and out. There is an ownership label affixed to the front free endpaper, although it has not been filled out. In all, this is a very nice copy of this children’s first edition.
