The BFG by Roald Dahl 1st / 1st 1982


First edition and first print published by Jonathan Cape in 1982. This is a very good ++ copy. The wrapper is very complete with no tears or chips. It is very clean and bright with no fading at all. It is also not price clipped. There are foxing marks to the inside flaps along the edges. The book is a very presentable one with clean and bright boards. There is a small previous owners name to the front free end paper. The pages have started to brown and there are a very small handful of light foxing marks to the text block. Overall it is in very good ++ condition.
