A first edition, second impression, published by Michael Joseph in 1971. A near fine copy SIGNED and INSCRIBED on the front free endpaper ‘To my old friend Douglas/Love/Roald/Roald Dahl’. In a very good unclipped wrapper with wear to the edges. 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
