Dahl, Roald (1916 – 1990)

An two-page autograph letter signed, circa 1970, by Roald Dahl, Beverly Hills Hotel headed paper.

The author writes to a bookseller, Mrs. Campbell, enclosing a letter from the publisher Alfred Knopf (no longer present). Dahl writes, ‘Obviously I must give you the chance of refuting the charge he levels against you. Perhaps you will let me have precise order dates, delays etc.etc.’ He continues, rather mysteriously, ‘But please treat this in confidence and do not communicate directly with Alfred on the subject. Nor let anybody other than y our husband know that you’ve seen the letter. Please let me have it back.’

In very fine condition.
