Roald Dahl, Dirty Beasts

This copy of Dirty Beasts by Roald Dahl is a hardback illustrated by Rosemary Fawcett. This was published by Jonathan Cape, London in 1983. It is a collection of humorous poems about amazing and scary creatures with striking full page colour illustrations plus black and white drawings set into the text.

It is said that Roald Dahl disliked the illustrations in this book and offered to buy up all unsold copies. Dirty Beasts was re-issued the following year with illustrations by Quentin Blake. However, we feel that Rosemary Fawcett’s illustrations capture the scary nature of the poems in this book.

A hardback that had no dust-wrapper. This copy is in very good condition. First published 1983, reprinted 1983 before it was replaced.
