DAHL, ROALD
CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY
1964. SCHINDELMAN, JOSEPH. DAHL,ROALD. CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. NY: Alfred Knopf (1964). 8vo, red cloth blind stamped on cover, [162]p, Fine in VG dust wrapper with a few closed margin tears and creases. 1st edition, 1st printing (correct colophon and no isbn #). Illustrated in black & white by Joseph Schindelman. Later copies have the same original published price but have the ISBN # on rear cover amongst other indicators that they are not first, thus proving that the price is not the determinant of edition. Even later editions change the nature of the Oompa-Loompas who are portrayed as stereotypical Blacks in the first edition. LAID-IN IS A BLACK AND WHITE GLOSSY PHOTO OF DAHL INSCRIBED BY DAHL (6 1/2 x 8"). This is a nice copy made more special with the photo.
Bookseller: Aleph-Bet Books, Inc. [US]
