London: Jonathan Cape, 1982. First Edition. Hard Cover. Near Fine/Near Fine. Blake, Quentin. 8vo. First edition. 224 p.p. B&W illustrations throughout. Grey cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. Spine ends bumped, damp staining to fore edge, smudge to top edge. Some light damp staining to endpapers at fore edge. Colour illustrated dust jacket has some damp staining to head, bumping to spine ends. Previous owner has scratched his name in blind to front cover and front flap. There are few things more terrifying than being snatched out of your bed at night by a giant four times as tall as the tallest human, with a stride as long as a tennis court. Roald Dahl, the most popular living author of books for children, has come up with a very special treat in The BFG. Quentin Blake has illustrated the hilarity to perfection. This is Dahl's most startling and wonderful tale since Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
