DescriptionRoald Dahl. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964.
First edition, first printing. Octavo. 161 pages. Illustrations by Joseph Schindelman.
Publisher's red cloth with gilt lettering to spine and blind-stamped title to front board. Top edge stained slate gray. Mustard endpapers. Slight lean to binding. Gilt a bit dulled. Pages clean and tight. Dust jacket has darkened along edges and spine; one chip at bottom of front panel and a few tape repairs to verso. A very good copy, in a custom slipcase.
The American edition is the true first edition, preceding the British publication by three years. The colophon contains the six lines of text, rather than the five lines seen in later editions. The book is in the first issue dust jacket with the $3.95 price. This children's classic featuring eccentric candy-maker Willy Wonka and his delightful concoctions - such as lickable wallpaper, marshmallow pillows, and fizzy lemonade swimming pools - has become one of the most enduring and popular children's books of the twentieth century, loved by both children and adults.
