A first edition, reprint, published by Cape in 1985. A near fine copy SIGNED and INSCRIBED on the front free endpaper ‘To Douglas/Love/Roald/’ – Dahl’s pen has not caught properly on the endpaper, so he has repeated the inscription (successfully) on the title page. A lovely copy with a strong association to Dahl himself. 

Douglas Highton attended St Peter’s Prep School in Weston-super-Mare with Roald Dahl.  As a friend, Douglas supported Roald during an incident at school, which Roald would never forget and later recounted in his autobiographical book ‘Boy’. Douglas also appears anecdotally in the short story ‘Lucky Break’, and as a character in the short story ‘The Swan’. The two stayed in touch over the years and Douglas would visit Roald at home in Great Missenden where Roald kindly signed many books for Douglas’ grandchildren, Andrew and Rebecca
