Dahl, Roald
London: Jonathan Cape, 1982. First edition. Near fine in near fine jacket.. Original grey cloth boards with gilt-stamped spine. In original unclipped (£6.50) pictorial dust jacket, illustrated by Quentin Blake. 224 pages. Inscriptions to front free endpaper: "to Nicola and Jonathan / love Quentin Blake" and "Love Roald Dahl 1982." A few light stains to rear board; mild bumping to corners. Jacket barely worn along edges; spine faintly sunned. First printing, doubly inscribed by both author and illustrator in the year of publication. Dahl's beloved story of a giant both Big and Friendly, who steals young Sophie out the window of her orphanage and whisks her away to the land of Giants to invent idioms at her and show off his dream collection. Ably illustrated by Quentin Blake, Dahl's frequent collaborator, whose frenetic gestural drawings quiver with life and indelibly define the characters.
Bookseller: Type Punch Matrix [United States]
