The BFG. Illustrated by Quentin Blake.

London: Jonathan Cape, 1982. [Children's classic] FIRST EDITION. Octavo (24 x 13cm), pp.224. With frequent in-text illustrations by Quentin Blake. Publisher's grey cloth with gilt titles to spine. Pictorial dust-jacket, illustrated by Blake in colour and priced at £6.50 net. Some expected tanning to edges of text block, which was bound a couple of mm. lower within the case from outset (not dropped, as such). Light handling and bumping. A near fine, affordable copy of arguably the author's masterpiece. The story of Sophie's adventures with the Big Friendly Giant, bursting with strange and quite dubious-sounding victuals such as fizzy Frobscottle and the revolting Snozzcumber. Basis for the 1989 animation starring Sir David Jason, and more recently the 2016 live-action film by Steven Spielberg. Item #51915
