First edition, first printing. 8vo. Blue boards with gilt lettering to spine. Pictorial dustwrapper by Quentin Blake. A fine copy with clean boards. Internally clean with no inscriptions. The fine dustwrapper is fresh and crisp. Original price of £6.99 to front flap. From the estate of a lady who bought multiple copies of Dahl's books on release and stowed them away immediately - an exceptional - as new copy.
The protagonist is a dyslexic vicar and the book was written to benefit the Dyslexia Institute in London - both Dahl & Blake donated their rights.
