For your consideration and for auction I offer a

                             FIRST DAY COVER
                       PERSONALLY SIGNED BY
                               FELICITY DAHL.               


The FDC, produced by Buckingham Covers,
carries the miniature sheet issued by Royal Mail as a tribute to one of the world's greatest children's authors.

Described as “one of the greatest storytellers for children of the 20th century”, Dahl is one of the most consistently popular UK authors of children’s books, but also wrote very successful fiction for adults, an autobiography and screenplays.  In 2008 The Times placed Dahl sixteenth on their list of "The 50 greatest British writers since 1945". His short stories are known for their unexpected endings, and his children's books for their unsentimental, often very dark humour.

More than 20 years after his death in 1990, his popularity around the globe continues to grow. His books have been translated into over 40 languages and worldwide sales have topped 100 million. For many children, Dahl’s books have become almost synonymous with reading itself.

The miniature sheet on the cover features four recoloured illustrations from the story of The BFG and Sophie from Quentin Blake’s original artwork. The margin depicts when the BFG met The Queen and the following quotation appears on along the border from chapter 19, The Queen:

'The BFG took his time. He was very dignified in his approach. When he was close to the window where the three of them were standing, he stopped and made a slow graceful bow. His head, after he had straightened up again, was almost exactly level with the watchers at the window.

“Your Majester,” he said. “I is your humbug servant.” He bowed again.'

The cover is postmarked at the Roald Dahl Museum and Story Centre at Great Missenden, Bucks on the first day of issue 10th January 2012 and is handsigned by Felicity Dahl, widow of the writer and is in fine condition.

I shall leave the images to complete my description and welcome all questions.

All that remains is to thank you for your interest and invite you to take a peek at my other items which include more signed FDCs.
