1 Dahl, Flight Lieutenant Roald The Gremlins from the Walt Disney production
Sydney Ayres & James Pty. Ltd. 1943 First edition thus Hardcover Good copy Jacket Walt Disney studios 
First Australian edition. Illustrated throughout in colour and black and white. Illustrations come from the Walt Disney studios. Illustrated paper covered boards with yellow & red illustrated front and rear endpapers. 273x220mm. Corners / edges worn. Top/tail backstrip bumped with short split to top end. A few marks and scuffs with tiny paper loss to lower board. The gutter has been reinforced with tape on the first and last few pages. Personal inscription on first prelim. Dustjacket is facsimile copy. An amusing story about little creatures that set about sabotaging military aircraft during the second world war, thereby leading to the term 'gremlins' for any inexplicible faults in the aircraft. Dahl had been a pilot during WWII, hence the 'Flight Lieutenant Dahl' authorship and the subject of the book was no doubt close to his heart and somewhat tongue in cheek.
