First edition. Originally written as an article by Dahl back in 1946, this book tells the tale of Gordon Butcher, an English plowman, who uncovered the greatest treasure ever found in the British Isles: a hoard of Roman silver of unparalleled beauty and value. Not knowing the value of his find, he was cheated out of his rightful fortune. This savage parable of innocence and greed is lavishly illustrated by renowned artist Ralph Steadman’s colorful, vivid pictures.
