Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - Dahl, Roald - 1964. 
New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1964. First Edition. Near Fine/Very Good +. Originally published in the US three years before being published in the UK. True first issue of this children's classic with the six line colophon on the last page of the book and no isbn number on the dust jacket. A Near Fine copy of the book with the spine slightly dulled and a trifle cocked. In a Very Good+ dust jacket with very slight chipping at the spine ends and the lower rear panel, otherwise an excellent copy. Roald Dahl's beloved children's book about the poor Charlie Bucket winning a ticket to a tour of Willy Wonka's legendary and mysterious candy factory. The book was inspired by Dahl's own experiences with chocolate as a young boy and the fierce rivalry between the two principal English chocolate makers, Cadbury and Rowntree. J.K. Rowling named it among her top ten Children's books and the book appeared on the BBC's Big Read poll of the nation's best loved novels. The book was, of course, also adapted into the cult classic 1971 film of the same name."He has done it again, gloriously. Fertile invention, rich in humor, acutely observant, he depicts fantastic characters..." (Contemporary New York Times Review). Near Fine in Very Good + dust jacket.
