Publisher's original red card covers printed in black. Illustrated with line drawings by Quentin Blake throughout.

The contents are entirely complete, clean throughout and without previous owner's inscriptions or stamps. Scarce in this proof state, considerably so signed by the author. Signed by Roald Dahl in black ink at the bottom of the half title.
