Roald Dahl (1988) 'Matilda', UK first edition, first printing, published by Jonathan Cape. Signed by Dahl on the ffep without personalisation in his typical bold black pen. Condition: a near fine book in a very good dust jacket. Very slight shelf wear with no major bumps. Clean boards, and clean page block without any foxing. No previous owners' names nor scribbles. The Roald Dahl signature has offset on the front paste down and the front flap of the jacket. This is quite common with the pen that Dahl used to sign books. The dust jacket is very good with slight creases and the mentioned offset on the front flap. Not price clipped showing the correct GBP 8.50 net price. One of the scarcest signed Roald Dahl first editions and one of the most coveted as 'Matilda' is one of his best works ranking on a par with 'Charlie and the Chocolate Factory' and 'The BFG'. Published in October 1988 the book achieved immediate landmark status and is widely read among children and adults alike. Adapted as a film in 1996. Rolad Dahl sadly passed away in November 1990.
