Lucius Book's Rayner Unwin collection of Roald Dahl
From Essex, England
"Together with eight letters to Rayner Unwin, six typed from Dahl and signed in ink, all warm in tone and principally dealing with publication of his books, including an exceptional letter praising his newly discovered illustrator Quentin Blake and suggesting he illustrates some of his Unwin editions, approval of Unwin’s ‘gentlemanly’ business conduct and requests for copies to be sent to him from the publisher for charity signings. He also refers to the unfinished ‘Charlie’ sequel, ‘Charlie in the White House’, but suggests he had no plans to complete it; one handwritten letter is from the UK illustrator of Dahl’s early books, Faith Jaques, chasing royalty payments, and one typed and annotated and signed in ink from Liccy, Dahl’s widow, shortly after his death. Also included is the printed tribute by Peter Mayer, then CEO of Penguin, delivered at Dahl’s funeral in Great Missenden.
A fantastic publisher’s collection of one of their most successful authors, the letters revealing a close and mutually appreciative working relationship."
