Published by Jonathan Cape, London; 1985. 8vo. This is an excellent copy of this first edition of a Roald Dahl copy. This book is in Fine condition, tightly bound in it’s original navy boards with silver gilt lettering. Inside the poages are clean and bright and free from damage, apart from a couple of stains on p. 36-37 and a smudge on p. 43. The dust jacket is also in Fine condition, clean and bright and free from marks or blemishes. There is just the slightest of bumping to the top of the spine and the corners, but otherwise the jacket is in excellent condition.
In all, this is a lovely copy of this first edition of one of Roald Dahl’s later classic tales. This would be an excellent book to enjoy with any child, or the perfect copy to complete a Roald Dahl first edition collection.
