The Witches by Roald Dahl 1st / 1st 1983
First edition and first print published by cape in 1983. This is a near fine copy. The wrapper is almost immaculate. It has not been price clipped and there is very little if any wear. The corners and edges are sharp and all of the panels / spine retains its colour. The book has a trace amount of foxing to the top text block. Otherwise the pages are very clean and without marks. No previous owners names. The spine is a tad soft at the bottom edges. Overall this is a highly collectible near fine copy.
The Witches is set partly in Norway and partly in the United Kingdom, and features the experiences of a young British boy and his Norwegian grandmother in a world where child-hating societies of witches secretly exist in every country. The witches are all ruled by the extremely vicious and powerful Grand High Witch, who in the story has just arrived in England to organise her worst plot ever. But an elderly former witch hunter and her young grandson find out about the evil plan and now they must do everything to stop it and defeat the witches.
