Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. First edition of this Dahl classic. Octavo, original cloth, beautifully illustrated, many full-page and in color. Boldly signed by Roald Dahl on the front free endpaper and also signed by the illustrator, Nancy Ekholm Burkert on the half-title page. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with a touch of rubbing. Housed in a custom half morocco clamshell box. An exceptional example, most rare and desirable signed by both the author and the illustrator. In 1953 Dahl married the actress Patricia Neal; they had three children, to whom he began to tell bedtime stories. James and the Giant Peach, the first of these to reach print, is a comic fantasy about a small boy who travels the world inside a huge peach, in company with several giant insects. Like most of Dahl’s children’s books, it first appeared in print in the United States (Carpenter & Prichard). It was made into the 1996 film produced by Tim Burton and Denise Di Novi, directed by Henry Selick, starring Paul… Read More

Description:
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1961. Fine in very good plus to near fine jacket. Signed first edition of one of Dahl's best children's books: characteristically bizarre, wicked, and heart-warming. When Dahl published his first book for children with Disney, GREMLINS (1943), he believed it was a happy one-off and focused instead on developing his career as a writer for adults. Nearly two decades later, Dahl published JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH as his second children's book, finally moving into the field where his writing would develop into a powerful legacy. The darkness of Dahl's worlds for children have often been objected to by adults - this book regularly features on lists of banned or challenged books in American libraries - but for many children, it is the spark of fantasy within bleak settings that appeals to the imagination without becoming saccharine: Tim Burton famously told Dahl's widow he wanted to turn JAMES AND THE GIANT PEACH into a film because "it's the only book that ever gave me any… Read More

Douglas also appears anecdotally in the short story 'Lucky Break', and as a character in the short story 'The Swan'.
