1975. 1. DAHL,ROALD. CHARLIE AND THE CHOCOLATE FACTORY. NY: Knopf (1964). 8vo, red cl. blind stamped on cover, [162]p, Fine in price clipped dw with no tears, light creasing. 1st ed. (correct colophon and no isbn #). Illus. in b&w 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 TYPED LETTER SIGNED BY DAHL. Done on his personal stationary, dated 1975, written to an American elementary school class. It is a charming and personal 10 line letter boldly signed by him in blue ink (creased on right margin, a closed tear). This is a special copy, scarce.
