The stunning original first edition, first state dust jacket is in beautiful condition having benefited from very slight restoration to the spine and corner outer tips by an expert paper conservator and as such presents in near fine condition. The jacket has strong, bright vibrant colors still retaining the strong red/orange tones to the spine (which is most unusual as this title is usually found with faded spines).
The jacket has no edgewear, no stains, no rips, no chips, no rubbing, no fading and no foxing. A remarkable, clean, crisp exceptional example of this title, with a very early signature and drawing by Roald Dahl! Outstanding presentation with the near fine dust jacket.
