One of Roald Dahl’s later books (first published in 1988), Matilda is also one of his most cherished. The story of a little girl with a love of reading that will not be denied continues to delight children the world over and become the basis for a sensational musical.
Our copy is an early (1989) reprint in the original hardcover format, published by Jonathan Cape, and has Roald Dahl’s bold signature on the front endpaper.
It isn’t pristine – general wear includes some slightly dog-eared pages, marks on boards and other grubbiness.
But overall, it is a very good copy and certainly a collectible item.
