London: Jonathan Cape, 1983. First edition of Dahl's Whitbread Award-winning children's novel, illustrated by Quentin Blake. Octavo, original cloth. Boldly signed by Roald Dahl on the half-title page. Near fine in a near fine dust jacket. Dahl's The Witches centers on the experiences of a young British boy and his Norwegian grandmother in a world where child-hating societies of witches secretly exist in every country.
