The Witches

DAHL, Roald

DAHL, Roald The Witches

Cape, 1983.

First edition. 8vo. Petrol blue boards in pictorial dustwrapper, which is illustrated in colour by Quentin Blake. Inscribed by Dahl on the front free endpaper, "To James love Roald Dahl, 16 Dec. 1983". Illustrated in line by Quentin Blake throughout. A near fine copy in a near fine dustwrapper.

Don't be fooled by those witches with their black hats, black cloaks and broomsticks, though, those are not REAL WITCHES. Real witches are exceedingly difficult to spot in the wild and dress in ordinary clothes, looking very much like ordinary people. Dahl's vital indicators for spotting a real witch include facts like they always wear gloves, they have no toes, are bald as boiled eggs and they have blue spit.
Uncommon signed.
