DAHL, Roald (author). The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and six more. London, Jonathan Cape. 1977.
8vo. Original publisher's dark blue grained boards lettered in gilt to spine, preserved in the original pictorial dustwrapper with wrap-around design; pp. [vi], -249; externally near fine with gentle rubbing to spine ends, internally fresh throughout, protected by a near fine, price-clipped dustwrapper with slight bruising to head, a tiny nick to top edge, and slight fading.
First edition. An intriguing collection of stories for young and old by the master of the genre: "there is something secret in these stories, something not quite familiar - something that, just as it seems to have escaped your grasp, settles lingeringly, delicately in the mind" (wrapper blurb).
