This site is an official Amazon.com Associate. That means I earn a small commission whenever someone clicks to Amazon and makes a purchase.
However, this does not mean that Amazon is the only retailer I recommend. Amazon is an excellent clearinghouse for new titles, but they don’t often carry the collectible and rare editions that so many of us are looking for. For these, I suggest you visit one of the sites listed below on this page. If you have a movie/bookstore to add, please send me the relevant information. Thanks!

In terms of identifying true first editions, the most recent and accurate information is found in Richard Walker’s article “Roald Dahl – A Guide to Collecting His First Editions”.
