Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories - Signed First US Paperback Edition 1984
Farrar Straus Giroux. Roald Dahl - Roald Dahl's Book of Ghost Stories - First US Paperback Edition 1984 - SIGNED and INSCRIBED A first edition, softcover published by Farrar Straus Giroux in 1984. A fine copy SIGNED and INSCRIBED on the front inside cover 'To Douglas/Love/Roald/'. A lovely copy with a strong association to Dahl himself. Douglas Highton attended St Peter's Prep School in Weston-super-Mare with Roald Dahl. As a friend, Douglas supported Roald during an incident at school, which Roald would never forget and later recounted in his autobiographical book 'Boy'. Douglas also appears anecdotally in the short story 'Lucky Break', and as a character in the short story 'The Swan'. The two stayed in touch over the years and Douglas would visit Roald at home in Great Missenden where Roald kindly signed many books for Douglas' grandchildren, Andrew and Rebecca. ___________________________________________ JOHN ATKINSON BOOKS is a full-time professional bookseller in Harrogate, North Yorkshire.
