First UK edition. Signed by the author. Publisher's original blue cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent near fine copy, the binding square and firm with a little softening at the head of the spine. The contents are clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Complete with the lightly rubbed and nicked dustwrapper which has a few tiny chips at the head of the lightly faded spine and a couple of marks to the rear panel. Clipped and re-priced by the publisher to the front flap.
Signed by Roald Dahl in black ink on the front endpaper. The author's second book, his first for adults, a short story collection based on his experiences in the Royal Air Force during the Second World War.
