Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. First edition of this Dahl classic. Octavo, original cloth, beautifully illustrated, many full-page and in color. Boldly signed by Roald Dahl on the front free endpaper and also signed by the illustrator, Nancy Ekholm Burkert on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of shelfwear. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box made by the Harcourt Bindery. An exceptional example, most rare and desirable signed by both the author and the illustrator. In 1953 Dahl married the actress Patricia Neal; they had three children, to whom he began to tell bedtime stories. James and the Giant Peach, the first of these to reach print, is a comic fantasy about a small boy who travels the world inside a huge peach, in company with several giant insects. Like most of Dahl’s children’s books, it first appeared in print in the United States (Carpenter & Prichard). It was made into the 1996 film produced by Tim Burton and Denise Di Novi, directed… Read More

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf,, 1961. A signed copy of the author's first book for children First edition, first printing, with the five-line colophon, signed by the author on the front free endpaper. An early advert for the book stated "one is tempted to say that not since Alice has there been such a wonderland. The difference is that James is all boy and what transpires in the story is anything but Victorian". The publisher wrote to Dahl on 5 July 1960 stating "If this doesn't become a little classic, I can only say that I think you will not have been dealt with justly" (Treglown, p. 124). Described as "rude, naughty, anti-adult, creepy, and sometimes cruel" (ODNB), James and the Giant Peach was adapted into a film of the same name in 1996, which was nominated for the Academy Award for "Best Music, Original Musical or Comedy Score" the following year. There have been numerous stage adaptations and one musical version of the book. Quarto. Original red cloth, spine lettered in gilt, design to front cover… Read More

Description:
London: George Allen & Unwin, 1967. First printing. Near fine.. First UK edition of Dahl's escapist fruit adventure - a beautiful copy. Originally published in the U.S. in 1961 and newly illustrated by Simeon for this first British edition, JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH was described in Allen & Unwin's foreword as Dahl's "first book for children" (somewhat accurate, if one disregards his earlier THE GREMLINS (1943), originally intended as the basis for a Disney film). Dahl's genius as a writer for all age groups lies in his refusal to strip his children's books of the pure, unadulterated nastiness at the core of his most memorable adult short stories; sex is absent, but the vulgarity and meanness in the darkness of the human heart is, if anything, greater and more fearsome here: for Dahl, hatred of injustice is born early in a child's spirit and festers until it finds some awful, Aunt-crushing catharsis. The gruesome revenges taken by the weak upon the strong are correspondingly satisfying, unfettered… Read More
