First edition, first impression. A wonderful example of the Chelsea Bindery's work. Dahl's fantastical tale was expanded from a short story within his 1975 book Danny, the Champion of the World. A film adaptation, directed by Steven Spielberg, was released in 2016.
Octavo. Finely bound by the Chelsea Bindery in pink morocco, titles to spine and front board onlaid in grey and blocked in black, pictorial onlay wrapped around front and back board copied from the dust jacket, twin rule to turn-ins in black, plain black endpapers, gilt edges.
With black and white illustrations.
A fine copy.
