London: Jonathan Cape. 1983. First edition, first printing. First edition, first printing. Original pictorial laminated boards. No dustwrapper called for. A very near fine copy, the binding clean and bright with a tiny bump to the top right corner. The contents are entirely complete, without loose or torn pages and without previous owner?s inscriptions or stamps. A lovely example copy. Signed by the author in black ink to the title page (with light offsetting to the yellow endpaper opposite). Roald Dahl was not a fan of the illustrations for the first edition of this title, asking Quentin Blake to re-illustrate the book, which was published the following year. As a result signed copies of the true first are quite scarce. Provenance: Signed by the author at Sjølyst Book Fair in Oslo; private collection, Norway; Antikvariat Richard Sørbø, Norway (Katalog 49); Private collection, Norway. Further details and images for any of the items listed are available on request. Lucius Books welcomes direct contact with our customers.
