First edition, first printing. Inscribed by the author. Original black cloth with gilt titles to the spine, in dustwrapper. An excellent better than very good copy, a little bumped to the spine tips, the contents clean and bright. Complete with the very good rubbed and ever so slightly nicked dustwrapper. Not price-clipped. This collection was later reprinted as "Tales of the Unexpected" to coincide with the Anglia Television Series.
Inscribed by Roald Dahl in blue ink on the front free endpaper, "To Paul / with luck and lots of good wishes from Roald" underneath which Dahl's wife has inscribed "+ Patricia Neal Dahl (me too!!!)".
