Literary material includes correspondence with publishers and agents, manuscripts, printers' proofs and illustrations for books, stories, plays, films and articles, both published and unpublished.

The archive also holds copies of interviews, biographies and studies of Roald Dahl’s work, which he collected during his lifetime or were added to the collection by his family shortly after his death.

His ‘personal’ papers include family photographs, personal correspondence and ephemera, some of which was inherited from his mother, Sofie Magdalena Dahl (1885-1967). Please note, some of this material is closed to public viewing.
